Recognition of Outstanding Members and Partnerships within our Profession
Make this year memorable for your colleagues by recognizing their achievements as you nominate them for a coveted AAFCS-Texas Affiliate State Award. The award honorees will be announced during the Awards Banquet at the Annual American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences-Texas Affiliate, State Conference in Denton.
Take advantage of this opportunity to nominate your fellow professionals by rewarding them for their accomplishments, hard work and dedication to the numerous fields of Family and Consumer Sciences. In past years there have been several of our awards that have not had any submissions, so please be thinking of potential deserving awardees for 2020. Start now and make it your goal to have several nominees for each category! Remember you can ask a fellow member to nominate you or you can reward yourself by completing your own nomination to highlight your desiring achievements.
