SNA Member Awards
The SNA awards program is a great opportunity to highlight the outstanding and important work of SNA members and state affiliates!

Each year SNA awards are presented to its outstanding members and state association leaders at the Annual National Conference (ANC) during the State Awards Ceremony and General Sessions.

Nominate a colleague you admire today for an SNA Award. 

All nominees must be SNA members who hold a SNA certificate throughout the entire awards process. All award nominations are due online or to the State President by March 1 of each year.
