Seeking Award Worthy Criminal Justice Programs

Seeking Award Worthy Criminal Justice Programs
April 2, 2013
The National Criminal Justice Association (NCJA) is seeking nominations for its annual NCJA Outstanding Criminal Justice Programs Awards. These awards honor innovative and successful criminal justice programs that use promising practices to address important crime and justice issues in communities.
Programs are evaluated using the following criteria:
  • Does the program address an important criminal justice issue?
  • Has the program demonstrated effectiveness based on program goals?
  • Is the program a good example of leveraging federal, state, local or other non-governmental funds and resources?
  • Can the program be easily replicated in other jurisdictions?
The NCJA will honor these winning programs at the 2013 National Forum on Criminal Justice during an Awards Luncheon on Tuesday, August 4. This year's National Forum will take place August 4-6 at the Chicago InterContinental Hotel in Chicago, IL. Travel expenses will be provided for one representative from each winning program.
A selection committee will review the nominations and select one program from each NCJA region and one outstanding tribal program to receive the award. The tribal program may be from any region in the country. To see previous award winners, please click here.
Nominations can be submitted online at the NCJA website or a hard copy of the nomination form is available here. An individual or agency may nominate as many programs as they wish. Please complete one form for each program. 
A representative from the  state agency administrator (SAA) along with the program director must sign each nomination form. To find the state administering agency in your state, please click here. Forms without these signatures will not be considered.
