Educator of the Year Award

PRAL recognizes the career achievements of its members through an annual state awards program. Each year, PRAL awards a member with the PRAL Educator of the Year Award from nominees submitted at the chapter level. Those recipients then go on to compete in the Southern Public Relations Federation regional awards program with the winner announced at SPRF's annual conference. SPRF established this award to recognize an educator who has taught public relations or a closely-related discipline and who has demonstrated a commitment to advance the profession of public relations.

The Educator of the Year Award recognizes an outstanding educator who has taught public relations or a closely-related discipline and who has demonstrated a commitment to advance the profession of public relations. The award is judged based on four categories: teaching ability, university and community service, accreditation/continuing education/scholarly activity and involvement in SPRF/member organization. To qualify, the nominee must:

  • Be a full-time faculty member teaching in a PR/journalism/communications curriculum
  • Be a member of SPRF

 

2015 Deadline for Chapter Nominations: March 16, 2015.
