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 Award program
includes 10 National Awards. The categories and criteria have been
designed to be inclusive and significant to park and recreation.
NRPA is very pleased to announce the recipients of the 2014 National Awards.
Applications for the 2015 National Awards are now closed. Status notifications will be available in late June. Information for the 2016 National Awards will be available in January 2016.
