New York State
Each year the New York State Recreation and Park Society presents a series of awards that have become a coveted honor for the people and organizations singled out for their contributions to parks and recreation. These awards are an excellent opportunity to recognize the contributions of the variety of people who make New York's parks, recreation and therapeutic recreation facilities work at their best.
The awards are given at the Annual Awards Presentation, held each year during the Annual Conference & Business Expo. Only current members of the New York State Recreation and Park Society are eligible to nominate qualified candidates. NYSRPS would like to see all of New York State represented in these awards and we rely on our membership to take a look around the office and community to nominate both the hardworking behind-the-scene organizers as well as our creative and inspirational leaders.
Please submit nominations by February 23, 2024 *Digital submissions are preferred and can be emailed as a single PDF file to:
