NCPRSA's InSpire Awards honor our region’s most successful and innovative communications programs from the past year. Communications professionals from agencies, corporate shops, nonprofits, associations, and government offices, as well as solo practitioners across our area produce outstanding work and achieve fantastic results each year. The InSpire Awards are modeled after PRSA’s Silver and Bronze Anvil Awards, making it easier to enter both. With subcategories for Silver and Bronze Awards, there’s an award opportunity for every budget, project, and team.
A long-time PRSA member and Gold Anvil winner, Mike Herman was a tireless advocate for excellence in public relations education.
In honor of his memory, his commitment to professional achievement, and his unique role as a mentor to many in our community, each year NCPRSA is proud to recognize an outstanding professional with the Michael Lee Herman Memorial Award.
The Award for Excellence in Mentoring is presented to an individual who exemplifies the ideal image of a mentor through a sustained track record of hands-on instruction and overall support to others pursuing a career in public relations, marketing or other communications field.
