  • In order to bring community leaders and elected officials to help accept your award, winners are notified prior to the annual conference.
 
  • A professional promotion package will be provided and includes customized press materials and social media tools to help you get the local and statewide recognition you, your team and your project deserve. 
  
  • Winners will have the opportunity to provide a promotional video and will be featured on FRA's website, social media, weekly newsletter and other marketing materials.

Good news! The online submission form makes the application process easier than ever.

  • You must be a current member in good standing to submit an award entry.

  • The system will not tell you that your photos have been uploaded until you hit the SUBMIT button.

  • You have to upload everything at once. The system does not allow you to save entries.
