Honors & Awards
There are four opportunities to be recognized by the Philadelphia Public Relations Association each year. The Board of Governors, along with a nominating committee, take pride in selecting the most deserving individuals and, in some cases organizations. The Gold Medal Award, the Fast-Track Award and the Dr. Jean Brodey Student Achievement Award are all awarded annually. The highest honor given to a member of the Association is induction into the PPRA Hall of Fame each spring. You can learn about eligibility for this distinguished honor by clicking here.
