Nominate a Distinguished Prosecutor

Each year, the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) recognizes prosecutors who have distinguished themselves among their peers as they seek justice, hold offenders accountable, and protect the rights of victims. The Distinguished Prosecutor Award is awarded to one chief prosecutor, one assistant prosecutor, and one emerging leader each year. Nominations are accepted year-round, but nominations for 2020 must be submitted by 11:59 pm, Friday, January 10th, 2020. Nominations are encouraged from all NDAA members.


Please join us for the NDAA Summer Summit in Denver, CO from July 20-21, 2020
where we will honor the award recipients.
