TPS AWARD WINNERS: 1941 - 2019 (click title to download a full list)

Deadline for award nominations closed April 22. Thank you!

Amidst these challenging times, now more than ever is the time to look ahead and spread joy. We ask that you take this special opportunity to recognize and say thanks to colleagues and friends who have served as advocates for children.  Please take the time to help us acknowledge those who work on behalf of pediatrics and the children of Texas. The deadline to submit a TPS award nominee has been extended to Wednesday, April 22. Please see below for details.  Thank you for taking time to honor a colleague. Stay safe!

Your testimony and recommendation are important, as we may not be aware of all the work being done for Texas children.   Award winners will be honored at the TPS Annual Meeting Awards Luncheon to be held Saturday October 17, 2020 at the Moody Gardens Hotel in Galveston, TX.

You may submit a nominee for each award. Each award has an area for you to submit their information. Before nominating someone, please check the TPS AWARD WINNERS: 1941 - present to make sure they are not a previous recipient of the award for which you are nominating them.
