Annual Awards

National Council on Problem Gambling

2018 Awards Nominations

Each year the National Council on Problem Gambling honors individuals and organizations for their work on problem gambling issues.  The process is overseen by the NCPG Awards Committee.  Please note the NCPG awards have undergone many changes over the past four decades, so the current criteria do not necessarily apply to previous awards.

2018 Awards are for activities from Jan 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017

Award recipients are selected based on the merits of their work in the specific category as presented in the nomination materials. It is extremely important that your nomination materials are complete. Since members of the awards committee may not be familiar with your nominee, it is vital that your nomination materials provide detailed information regarding the justification for the award. This information should include specific examples, verification of facts, letters of support, and any other items necessary to make your case. The Awards Committee reserves the right to solicit additional information regarding nominees at any time.  Finalists will be recognized by name at the NCPG National Conference on Problem Gambling.
