SNA Awards and Scholarships
The SNA awards program is a great opportunity to highlight the outstanding and important work of SNA members and state affiliates!
Members and state associations are eligible for many awards and honors that recognize their achievements in school foodservice, leadership, membership recruitment and professional development. Each year SNA awards are presented to its outstanding members and state association leaders at the Annual National Conference (ANC) during the State Awards Ceremony and General Sessions.
Nominate a colleague you admire today for an SNA Award.
All nominees must be SNA members who hold a SNA certificate throughout the entire awards process. All award nominations are due online or to the State President by March 1 of each year.
These awards recognize achievement and excellence in state association leadership, membership recruitment and retention, and professional development:
- President's Award of Achievement, in honor of Thelma Flanagan
- President’s Award of Excellence
- Membership Awards
- Professional Development Awards
For over 30 years, the School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) has been raising funds to provide SNA members the opportunity to achieve their higher education goals through a wide variety of scholarships. To date, SNF has awarded members over $2 million in scholarships.
