SNA Awards Program
Through the SNA Awards Program, SNA celebrates and recognizes every-day heroes: school nutrition professionals who work every day to ensure well-nourished students across the country are prepared for success! The SNA Awards Program features easy-to-understand names, streamlined rules, and you can now nominate a deserving colleague online www.schoolnutrition.org/awards.
Annually, nominations are submitted to the ISNA executive board. Selections are made based on the nominations submitted. Each State then submits their winners for a chance for Regional recognition and then National recognition.
