Promoting Excellence in Prevention Award

To support the Services in their prevention efforts, the DoD uses the Promoting Excellence in Prevention Award to recognize a group or an individual (military or civilian) from each Military Service/component who contributed or developed an idea, concept, methodology, or approach to positively impact the sexual assault prevention efforts on an installation, deployed environment, or in a reserve component. This award recognizes individuals or groups whose work has been particularly noteworthy and demonstrates outstanding service in support of Service members. Policies, programs, or practices at any level of the organization are eligible activities. Awardees from each of the six military components are recognized in April.

The activities selected each year are published to facilitate the sharing of information as the military continues its mission to reduce -- with the goal to eliminate -- sexual assault in the military.

Contact your Services’ SHARP/SAPR program office for more information.
