Outstanding Contribution by an Organization

This award is presented to an organization, agency, or company that has shown outstanding support for NOHS’s mission and goals.  The organization may be a nonprofit community agency; a faculty run project that has nonprofit status; a student- run club sanctioned by a university; or a for-profit company. Examples of support for NOHS include: a company that provides funding for student travel to a conference; the promotion of NOHS at local events; membership drives for NOHS among human services professionals in the local community; sponsorship of NOHS's regional events. Keep in mind these efforts should produce a record of accomplishments across time. One-time events resulting in unusual accomplishments will be considered.
