State Legislative Advocacy Awards

ACOG Awards for State Legislative Advocacy

The Committee on Government Relations is pleased to present the ACOG State Legislative Advocacy Awards.   Our goal with this new award program is to support and stimulate state level advocacy, a central mission of the College and the new Congress. 

These awards will be conferred on a yearly basis and reward legislative activities which occur during the preceding legislative session.   In order to recognize both accomplished as well as developing ACOG States, two categories of awards have been established.  Recipient States will receive a $1,000 cash award and will be featured on a plaque at the ACOG national office in Washington, D.C.
