Niagara Awards

The PRSA/NWPA Niagara Awards are awarded annually to public relations practitioners who have successfully addressed a contemporary issue with exemplary professional skill, creativity and resourcefulness. We have also created a competition for students attending colleges in Pennsylvania. Students or PRSA chapters may enter any program or project category.

The PRSA Niagara Awards recognize complete public relations programs and projects incorporating sound research, planning, execution and evaluation. Winning entries must meet the highest standards of performance in the profession. A Best of Show Award will be given to the entry that stands out from the rest. All entries are judged by PR professionals outside of the Erie region.

The entry period for the 2017 Niagara Awards has closed.

The awards ceremony will be held Thursday, November 16, at 5:30 at the Brewerie at Union Station. The cost to attend is $25 for students or PRSA members or $35 for non-members. A table of eight (8) costs $170 and a table of four (4) costs $85. Admission to the ceremony includes an open bar until 7:00 p.m., and heavy hors d’oeuvres will be provided. Register for the ceremony. Sponsorships are also available.
