This five-star celebration honors all program Nominees in each program city and reveals the Finalists and Admin Award Winners in each award category. An independent board of judges works alongside Colleen Barrett to determine the Finalists and Winners in each of the 9 Award Categories. While the Admin Awards is a competition, at its heart it is a celebration of every Administrative Professional that walks through our doors. Commemorative gifts for each attending Admin, 14+ prize drawings valued at over $500 and other surprises are why hundreds of Admins are treated by their organizations each year to the Admin Awards, regardless of their status in the competition.

"My journey to winning the Colleen Barrett Award last year began with a nomination from my wonderful boss, Mark Hawkins. I was floored that he nominated me, but had only a vague idea of what was in store. The Gala was a magical evening filled with excitement, fun and emotion...Winning the Colleen Barrett Award for Administrative Excellence is the Hallmark of my career"
