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.
