The PRSA North Pacific District PR Practitioner of the Year Award is a regional honor for our NPD members.
The award is given annually to a PRSA member in the North Pacific District who has worked full-time in public relations for more than five years and demonstrated excellence in his/her public relations knowledge, skills and abilities.
It honors those who have excelled professionally and given back to the industry through volunteer contributions to PRSA.
Judges are leaders in other PRSA Districts. The award is presented by the district chair and given at the North Pacific District Conference, or on years when no conference is held, at a local chapter event.
The winner receives a physical award and is also featured on the PRSA NPD website. A news release is distributed, and the winner will be publicized via district and chapter social media networks.
