ACA Awards Program
The American Correctional Association awards excellence in the auditing and accreditation field. These awards are:
- The Dunbar Award
- The Keohane Award
- The Lucy Webb Hayes Award
The Dunbar and Keohane awards are presented annually at the summer Congress of Correction in recognition of superior contributions, professionalism, commitment and leadership to the auditing and accreditation process.
The Lucy Webb Hayes Award is presented to the agency or program that has achieved both ACA full accreditation and PREA compliance for every component within their area of responsibility. The Lucy Webb Hayes award represents the dedication of these agencies to enhancing public safety and the well-being of those in our care.
