Major and Special Awards

The CPRS Major and Special awards are presented annually to celebrate outstanding achievement and exceptional involvement in the profession by CPRS members.

Unlike the CPRS Awards of Excellenceparticipation in the program is reserved exclusively for CPRS members in good standing, with winners being nominated by peers. 

Major Award recipients will be invited to accept their award at the CPRS National Conference, where they will get the chance to accept the award and deliver an acceptance speech to their fellow members.

Winners will also be featured on the CPRS website and celebrated at the local level.


Nominations are due June 15 at 11:59 p.m. ET, and must include both a Major Awards entry form and a submission summary detailing how the candidate meets the nomination criteria.

Please note, while no entry fees are required to nominate, due to the stringent criteria, some Major Awards may not be awarded every year. Refer to each of the Major Award categories for detailed nomination criteria.
