State Association Professional Development Awards Each year, SNA recognizes state associations attaining SNA certificate program goals and achieving the highest increase in SNS credentialing. Certificate Program Goal Award Each state which meets its certificate program participation goal for the year (as determined by SNA headquarters) will be awarded $50. The goal for 2015-16 is a 3% increase in certificate program participants. All states will be required to increase the total the number of individuals with a Certificate in School Nutrition by at least one individual to win this award. Credentialing Division Champions The state association in each member division which has increased the number of SNS-credentialed individuals in the state by the largest number over the past year will be awarded $100. In the event that multiple states in a division are tied, the state with the largest percentage increase will receive the award for the division.
