This $1,000 scholarship is awarded in honor of Jack H. Sanders, the first president of PRAL and a visionary in the area of public relations. It is awarded annually to a Louisiana college junior, senior or graduate student who has demonstrated proficiency, excellence, and dedication to pursuing public relations knowledge, skills, and abilities.

The writing portions – essay (30%) and news release (30%) – are heavily weighted by the Jack H. Sanders Memorial Award judges. Please take care to submit carefully written and proofed writing samples. The judges reserve the right not to grant the award if applications do not merit presentation. Judges count GPA and honors/awards as 20% of the applicant score, while campus and volunteer activities and work experience count for 20% of the judge’s score.
