Bell Ringer Professional Award Submissions Now Open

Each year, there are three professional awards given during the Bell Ringer ceremony. These awards are meant to recognize professionals who are making their mark on the industry. While it’s the PR Club’s honor to provide the award opportunity, we need your help identifying these amazing professionals.

  • Striker Award – Intended to recognize young professionals, this award is given to someone who has excelled in their PR or communications career in a short period of time. This person has shown passion and dedication and surpassed other newcomers in their organization or field. Know someone who fits this description?
