NRPA National Awards are presented to individuals
and agencies to honor their efforts — both professional and personal — in
the field of parks and recreation. Recipients are selected by the Awards
& Scholarship Committee and are chosen for excellence in a variety of
topics, including professional and voluntary service, programming,
leadership, research and public outreach.
The NRPA National Awards include 11 awards. The categories and criteria have been
designed to be inclusive and significant to park and recreation.
Applications for the 2016 National Awards are now closed. Application information information for 2017 will be available in early January, 2017.
