Washington State Psychologist Awards

Each year the Washington State Psychological Association recognizes individuals and organizations who have contributed meaningfully to the purpose of WSPA, which is to support, promote and advance the science, education and practice of psychology in the public interest. 

The WSPA Board of Trustees solicits nominations from its members for the awards, evaluates and votes on these nominations, and then presents the awards to the winners at a ceremony during the annual WSPA Fall convention.  These awards include the Distinguished Public Service Award, which recognizes an elected or appointed official who has advanced mental health policy and legislation; the Distinguished Psychologist Award, given in recognition of significant contributions to the field of Psychology; and the Public Citizen Award, given in recognition of significant contributions to the psychological well being of the community. 

Other award categories include the Social Issues Award, given in recognition of outstanding application of psychology to community mental health in the public interest; the Distinguished Service Award, given in recognition of outstanding work in support of WSPA’s mission; the Sustained Service Award, given in recognition of life-long service to WSPA and the field of Psychology; and the Presidential Service Award, given to the out-going President of the Board, in recognition of the service rendered.
