The 2020 nomination process is now open and closes on February 28th!

About Our Awards

Our awards focus on the following categories.

Nomination Process

We are especially looking for more plan and people nominations. All professional planners must know a colleague that has been going above and beyond the call of duty. And we know that you work with exceptional volunteers. Please don't feel shy about nominating your own plan - whether it is a town plan, regional plan, a visioning plan, a modal plan, etc. Once all nominations are received, the VPA Awards Committee sends the nominations to the New Hampshire Planners Association for review. NHPA provides their recommendations to the VPA Executive Committee for adoption. An awards ceremony for recipients will be held at the Vermont State House in April at a time to be announced. VPA awardees are submitted to  NNECAPA's Award Program for consideration in August.
