PRISM Awards



PRISM Gala 2017

The Greater Kansas City chapter of the Public Relations Society of America presents, “Exceptional Performances: Celebrating Kansas City Public Relations” on October 12, 2017.

We will pay tribute to the talented public relations and communications professionals working in our area by showcasing outstanding programs, campaigns and materials. The best of the best also will be honored with special awards for their work, service and career achievements.

The PRISM Gala is our chapter’s largest annual fundraiser and recognition event that supports professional development and career advancement for current members, prospective professionals, and students from surrounding colleges and universities.

With top-notch awards, great networking and a noteworthy guest speaker, you won’t want to miss this year’s wonderfully revamped event shared with your colleagues. New this year is a silent auction that includes artwork, gift certificates and a wine bottle mini-fundraiser.

We look forward to welcoming you on October 12!
