APhA Good Government Student Pharmacist-of-the-Year Award

The award, established in 2004, recognizes a student pharmacist who successfully organizes student pharmacist grassroots activity within their chapter and actively promotes the value of advocating for the profession. The award, is based on the student's ability to raise awareness of local and national pharmacy issues while embracing the concept of teamwork and collaboration among students, practitioners, and their state pharmacy association. This award is presented twice during APhA Annual Meeting & Exposition; at the Political Leadership Reception and at the APhA-ASP House of Delegates.


Each spring, APhA honors the graduating member who has made the greatest contribution to each APhA-ASP chapter, with a Senior Recognition Certificate. In addition, APhA will nationally recognize all of the honored seniors through its publications. Chapter Advisors, with the advice and approval of the non-graduating officers and members, please select one student to be honored for his or her sustained outstanding work in your APhA-ASP chapter.
