Awards

Each year, the Texas School Public Relations Association (TSPRA) recognizes communicators in school districts, education foundations, education associations and organizations for their work in print and electronic media categories.  Hundreds of entries are received annually with the majority of the entries being separated into divisions based on the number of students in the district – under 10,000; 10,000 to 30,000; and over 30,000 students. 

Independent judges, not affiliated with TSPRA, evaluate and score each entry based on its own merit. Bronze, Silver and Gold Stars are awarded based on set criteria. Finally, the judges review their highest scoring Gold Star winners and select a Best of Category for each division in each of the main categories.
