Chartered in 1973, the Georgia School Public Relations Association (GSPRA) is a professional organization for school communicators and school-community relations specialists. GSPRA is an affiliate of the National School Public Relations Association and was designated as a Blue Ribbon Chapter of NSPRA for 25 years, until the launch of the NSPRA Mark of Distinction Awards. In 2010, and, again in 2015,GSPRA earned NSPRA's Mark of Distinction as an Exemplary Chapter. GSPRA members have also earned the prestigious Awards for Distinguished Service in both the single project and year-round project categories.

GSPRA is a vital medium for exchanging information and ideas and a wellspring of professional growth for education communicators statewide. The guiding philosophy is that the organization is enriched by the addition of each new member. GSPRA offers many quality services and resources for all members including support and mentoring for new communications staffers, regional and statewide conferencing opportunities as well as staff development resources for schools and communities.

Add a tool to the SPARK! Campaign Toolkit
As a partner with the Georgia Vision Project, GSPRA has committed time, talent, and resources to support the work of the SPARK! Campaign by providing a "toolkit" with ideas, examples, and inspiration from around the state, including logos, videos, a monthly idea generator for celebrating education, web resources, and examples.
Districts are welcome to review the contents of the SPARK! Campaign Toolkit for inspiration. GSPRA members are encouraged to submit materials (videos, stories, print materials, newspaper articles that you pitched, etc.) that illustrate how you celebrate success stories in your district. The Toolkit will be refreshed as additional resources are identified and as GSPRA members provide additional examples.
