PPPS Week Contests


We want to celebrate hardworking probation, parole, and pretrial services employees who go beyond the norm!

If you think someone from your organization has been doing a great job and deserves to be recognized for their hard work, give them the spotlight! Please submit the following:

  • Name and title of your nominee
  • A picture of your nominee (minimum 500x500 pixels)
  • Approximately 200 words describing why you think they deserve to be spotlighted (Word doc, PDF, or text file will be accepted).

We will be posting one deserving candidate each month on our new APPA Website, APPA’s Facebook, and Twitter pages.

Each person chosen will receive a free one-year individual membership ($50.00 value). All nominations will be taken during PPPS Week July 21-27, 2019. Start thinking of who you think deserves this spotlight!

Submission deadline is August 2, 2019 by 11pm EST. Stay tuned for the results of the PPPS Week Employee Spotlight Contest!
