National Awards

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 2015 National Awards
