Deadline: MRPA Awards of Excellence

31 Jan 2022 11:47 AM | Bethani Gerhard (Administrator)

Now's the time to show your support for your agency! The MRPA Awards of Excellence program recognizes agencies or organizations in Minnesota for outstanding achievements in parks, recreation, and leisure services.

We invite you to participate and submit your agencies' outstanding programs, projects, or initiatives. The Awards of Excellence application is an online process. The online application for each category is available as follows:

·     Administrative or Management Strategies

·     Marketing and Communications 

·     Park and Facility 

·     Programming and Events 

·     Sponsorship and Partnerships 

·     Volunteer Initiatives

*These recognize programs, projects, or initiatives that occurred during 2021*

This is a scored process, so complete answers to the application questions are valuable to a project’s overall score. Those applications that meet scoring criteria are presented with an MRPA Awards of Excellence plaque. All nominations must be submitted by the application deadline of February 28, 2022.

We encourage all agencies to submit at least one project application. Let’s highlight all the great projects happening in Minnesota!
