TxCFR Awards

As an organization, we believe in celebrating service that improves the lives of Texas families and professionals who serve them. Below is a summary of our awards that we give on an annual basis.

Established in 1970, the Moore-Bowman Award recognizes professionals who have made a significant contribution in the area of family life education, marriage and family therapy, and/or family related research in Texas. Named for its first two distinguished recipients, Dr. Bernice Milburn Moore and Dr. Henry A. Bowman, the award is presented at the annual conference in the years that a worthy recipient is selected. The Moore-Bowman Award is TxCFR’s most prestigious award and recognizes professionals whose contributions to family well-being in Texas have been truly outstanding. See our list of Moore-Bowman Award recipients.

The Meritorious Service Award was established by the TCFR Board of Directors in 1981 to acknowledge and encourage outstanding services and support to families and to family life in Texas. When awarded, it is presented at the annual conference to an individual, agency, corporation, foundation, or other organization whose contributions are determined to be of significance. An outstanding volunteer or other individual associated with an agency, corporation, foundation, or other organization that had made a contribution to family life in the state may also be recognized.

The Family Champion Award was established in 2014 by the TxCFR Board of Directors. The TXCFR Family Champion Award is presented to an individual or organization involved at the state or community level in the policy-making process, whose work over time has made significant contributions to the well-being of Texas families. The purpose of this award is to acknowledge Texas leaders whose work has significantly and positively shaped policies that impact the family.

Established in 2016, the Lane Powell Mentorship Award, recognizes professionals who have made a significant contribution in the area of family life education and practice, marriage and family therapy, and/or family related research through mentoring students and new professionals. Named for Lane Powell, an outstanding teacher, scholar, and mentor, the award is presented at the annual conference in the years that a worthy recipient is selected.  A recipient for this award has not yet been selected.
