Each year, OHSPRA honors individuals, school districts and others for their outstanding contributions in school communications.
Distinguished Individual Awards
- Established in 1987 to recognize individuals who have dramatically and positively impacted school public relations, the Crystal Award is the highest honor bestowed to an OHSPRA member. Submit your Crystal Award Nomination
Friend of Education Award
- School public relations is more than a one-person or one-department job. With that in mind, OHSPRA annually sponsors the Friend of Education Award to recognize those unofficial members of the school public relations team. Recipients can be individuals or groups of students, parents, volunteers, employees or community partners. Submit your Friend of Education Nomination
- Established by OHSPRA in 2010 to recognize individuals who have introduced or utilized new methods of communication to dramatically advance or impact school public relations locally, state-wide, or nationally. Submit Your Innovator Award Nomination
