The recognition and celebration of excellence within the field of Parks and Recreation is the sole purpose of the ARPA Awards committee. This group of volunteers undertake the difficult task of reading through the numerous qualified candidates each year in order to bestow most deserving professionals the honor of one of the following awards.

We invite you to take a moment and nominate a deserving co-worker, employee, volunteer or supervisor  In this packet is information on the Annual Awards and past Recipients and a Nomination Form. So many of our co-workers are deserving....THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO RECOGNIZE INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE MADE OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE PARKS AND RECREATION PROFESSION IN ALASKA!

The 2020 awards will be presented at the 2021 Annual Conference in Soldotna. Remember these awards recognize accomplishments done/completed in 2020.

We are also looking for volunteers who would like to serve on the Awards Selection Committee.  We would like to have one person from each section and from different communities around the state on the committee.  If this is something you would be willing to do, please email ARPA Awards Chair, Lauren Eck.
