The Oregon Agricultural Extension Association regularly participates with the NACAA to recognize outstanding achievement by its members. The NACAA offers two opportunities, the Achievement Award (AA) honoring members with less than 10 years experience, and the Distinguished Service Award (DSA)presented to deserving members with more than 10 years experience. Awards are presented at the National Meeting.

Award nominations are submitted each year with the previous DSA recipient automatically serving as head of the selection committee.
