2020 is looking a little different this year. Even though we're not able to be with each other in person at the annual WICSEC conference, we would be remiss if we didn't honor all of the amazing work that has taken place this last year. We encourage you to nominate any child support professional or program for an award. Nominations can be received from anyone in the program.

NOMINATION DEADLINE: Friday, July 17, 2020
