SNA State Association Awards

The SNA Awards Program recognizes state associations and their leaders for the outstanding job they do connecting members to valuable resources. Winners of the SNA State Association Awards will be recognized at the Awards Ceremony at the Annual National Conference (ANC).

President’s Award of Achievement, in honor of Thelma Flanagan
Each year, SNA awards every state president with the President’s Award of Achievement, in honor of Thelma Flanagan. This award recognizes the dedication and commitment state presidents provide throughout the year to strive to accomplish SNA’s mission and work to meet the SNA strategic goals.

President’s Award of Excellence
The President’s Award of Excellence recognizes three state presidents each year who demonstrate extraordinary leadership by successfully implementing strategies that advance school nutrition programs in their states and who made the extra effort in achieving excellence in SNA’s strategic goals.

In order to provide equal opportunity for states of different sizes, the President’s Award of Excellence is awarded to one state president in each of the three member divisions:

  • 1-500 Member Division
  • 501-1000 Member Division
  • 1001+ Member Division

State Presidents will automatically be entered to win the President’s Award of Excellence once they have submitted the Year-End Report.

Membership Awards
Each year, SNA recognizes state associations for increasing membership, attaining the membership goals, and achieving the greatest increase in membership amongst state associations.

Professional Development Awards
Each year, SNA recognizes state associations attaining SNA certificate program goals and achieving the highest increase in SNS credentialing.
