CES Awards and Recognition


“Recognition by peers is a powerful tool and is a great motivator that enhances job performance.”
-- Dr. J. Michael Sprott, Past Extension Director

CES believes that all staff benefit from recognition, especially monetary rewards for service and excellence to the organization. As a professional association, CES believes that setting high standards, encouraging strong personal goals, and recognizing work that goes above and beyond reaps benefits for Extension and for the individuals themselves.

CES has a strong commitment to professionalism and self-improvement. Encouraging those characteristics in its members requires a commitment to professional development. Applications for the following awards are typically available in October and awarded at the CES Annual Meeting held in conjunction with the OSU Extension Annual Conference.
