Every year, the California Chapter of NASW honors individuals who have made significant contributions to social work. It’s time to submit your nominations! With the year 2020 squarely behind us, it’s time to shine a light on social workers who made a significant impact with their clients, with their work community, or made their mark to ensure that our society not only continued to run amidst a pandemic that upended our lives, but also went above and beyond their call of duty.
Each year, we award individuals and organizations in four categories. These include social workers who have performed outstanding work in the past few years (Social Worker of the Year); social workers who have a lifetime of major achievements (Lifetime Achievement); non-social workers who have outstanding public service (Community Member of the Year), and our newest award for organizations who have contributed to the social work field (Organization of the Year). Award winners in the Social Worker of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement categories must be NASW members.
These social workers are honored at NASW California’s Annual Conference, which are normally held in alternate locations annually between northern and southern California. Social workers from all over the state qualify each year.
