SOCIAL WORKER – PUBLIC CITIZEN – STUDENTS OF THE YEAR

Every year as part of the Annual Meeting, the New Hampshire Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers selects recipients for the Social Worker of the Year, Citizen of the Year, BSW Students from UNH and PSU,  and MSW Student from UNH of the Year awards. We do this to recognize and honor individuals for their contributions to the profession of social work and to society. Nominations may be made by any Chapter member.

Many people may meet the criteria (below) used in making the selection. However, the Committee can only choose from the nominations it receives. So get your nomination in as soon as possible.
