News & Announcements
In light of the pandemic’s impact on our work, the MSPRA Awards and Recognition Committee, with the approval of the MSPRA Board, has issued a two-week “Pandemic Extension” for all MSPRA award submissions.
That means the submission deadline is pushed back from Tuesday, May 18 to Tuesday, June 01, 2021. To be considered, all entries and supporting materials must be received by Tuesday, June 01, 2021. Note: The entry forms do not reflect this new date, which is for this year only. This extension notice has been sent to all members via the listserv. See the awards page for more details.
