Outstanding Society Awards

Recognizing LOMA Societies for their Outstanding work!

The Outstanding Society awards recognize Societies that fulfill the defined criteria in any or all of five categories:

  • Communication and Public Relations Achievement Award
  • Community Service Achievement Award
  • Education Achievement Award
  • Society Membership Achievement Award
  • Special Achievement Award

Each award is based on the Society’s activities over the previous year. Winning Societies are recognized and presented with OSA medallions at LOMA’s Annual Conference and Conferment.

How to Enter

To win, you must provide evidence to LOMA of having met award criteria defined by LOMA’s Society Committee. For the category you wish to enter, download the submission form, which is a list of criteria for winning the award. Print the form and place your Society's name on it. Gather any related documentation/evidence of having met award criteria and organize into a neat folder or binder. Your package should include a signed cover letter with contact information so that judges may contact you with any questions. Also please include the name and address of the person who should receive the winner's announcement.
