To nominate someone for a DHPE Award, use the online nomination form. For a few awards, minor bio-sketches or other forms of documentation may be required to facilitate decision-making and tie- breakers. The DHPE awards committee will make final selections, notify you and the award recipient, and negotiate how the award will be received.

Award Presentation

Awards will be announced during a luncheon at the DHPE Annual Meeting. In the event that the recipient is not present to accept their award he or she may submit a video acceptance to be shown at the luncheon, or where feasible, may choose to have a state agency official or DHPE representative resent their award locally.

Take a moment and help DHPE identify excellence in the field of health promotion and education.
