For more than 15 years, NASC has celebrated the excellence of its members with annual NASC Member Awards, giving members an opportunity to share their success stories and be recognized for the wonderful accomplishments of their organization and staff. NASC Member Awards are the highest honor an organization or individual in the sport tourism industry can receive.

The 2018 Member Awards, activities, events, marketing campaigns, web strategies, etc. must have occurred between January 1 and December 31, 2017. The Awards Committee has spent the last several months modifying the required submission criteria and has moved toward a much more simplified award submission form to encourage increased participation.

2018 Award winners will be announced at the 26th annual NASC Sports Event Symposium in Minneapolis, MN, April 24, 2018.

To be considered, entries must be received by February 28.
