Welcome to WSPRA - the State's Leader in School-Community Relations!
The Wisconsin School Public Relations Association (WSPRA) is a professional association representing schools, school districts, educational associations, consulting agencies and organizations. WSPRA is a state affiliate of the National School Public Relations Association.
In 2006, WSPRA received NSPRA's Distinguished Chapter Award as the top chapter in the nation for its "commitment to advancing education through strong school communication." In both 2007 and 2008, WSPRA received NSPRA's Distinguished Single Project Award and honorable mention for the Distinguished Chapter Award.
Since then, WSPRA has earned Exemplary Chapter Status from NSPRA each year for its work in providing professional development opportunities to its members.
