Nominate a student for the 2014 CPRS/CNW Student Award of Excellence

Attention all post secondary student instructors and program coordinators:

It’s time for you to take action and nominate an outstanding student from your classroom for the CPRS/CNW Student Award of Excellence and help a Western Canadian PR student gain national recognition!

Since 2010, a student from eastern Canada has been decorated with the award. So this year, CPRS Vancouver is challenging BC-based educators to put their best student forward to bring the award to the west coast.

How to nominate:

Submit a 300 – 500 word summary to the CPRS National office by April 11, 2014 to nominate a student in their final year of their PR program for a chance to win a distinguishing certificate and a $1000 cash scholarship to support their academic advancement.

Will one of your students be the next in the spotlight?

Read what previous nominees have said about their nominees and eventual scholarship winners.

"Amanda has unfailingly shown that she not only has a clear understanding of the application of the principles of public relations theory in class, but in its application outside of the classroom as well. She has done this through the volunteer work with the Communications Society at Memorial and as student chair of CPRS Newfoundland and Labrador."

"Ryan embodies the characteristics of an excellent PR professional. If Ryan’s work ethic and skills are any indication of what the next generation of Canadian PR has to offer, our profession's future is bright."
