2014 Gold Medal Awards Program
Directions

2014 Gold Medal Award applications will be in an online format. Entries will have two components. Applicants must complete each component.

Questions 1 – 2 -- Statistical data will be captured using NRPA PRORAGIS. Please use this link https://www.iisecure.com/GoldMedal/Login.asp  to access this portion of the application. Answer all questions.  Please note that the online Gold Medal Awards program application portal is currently in its beta form.  It has been designed to be consistent with much of the information collected in NRPA's PRORAGIS system.  The aim is to eventually allow an export of your PRORAGIS data directly into the Gold Medal Awards Application.  In the meantime, if you have a completed 2013 PRORAGIS profile that you'd like to import into your Gold Medal Award application, please contact Greg Manns (gmanns@industryinsights.com) of Industry Insights with your PRORAGIS ID and he will populate your application with your PRORAGIS data.

Questions 3 – 11 -- Essay questions will be captured in survey form below.  Answer all questions within the specified word limit.

Supplemental Material: please include website links to your agency website Comprehensive Plan and program brochure as requested in Contact Information.

Helpful information: Visit www.nrpa.org/goldmedal for information you may find helpful in completing application: Before You Start, Agency Pre-Evaluation, Judges Scoring Criteria.  Due to repeated requests from applicants, the Gold Medal process now includes the sample of the judges scoring criteria that they will use as they assess each question and each agency.
