Family of the Year

Tell us about your incredible Wolfpack Family!

Nominate Your Family

The annual Family of the Year contest has become a university tradition during Parents and Families Weekend. This annual contest provides students with the opportunity to honor their parents and family members for their continued dedication and outstanding support of the student’s higher education.

After an unprecedented year, we know that so many of our NC State parents and families gave their unwavering strength and support not only to their students but to the entire Wolfpack community. 

The awarded family will receive

  • NC State bookstore gift certificate
  • A semester of free WolfTV for students who live on campus
  • An engraved plaque honoring the family
  • Complimentary event tickets to all events of their choice during Parents and Families Weekend 2021 AND Spring Fling 2022
  • Complimentary hotel accommodations at NC State’s premier property State View for up to two rooms for both Friday and Saturday evenings
  • All-access pass to the Sept. 18 NC State v. Furman football game with seating in the Chancellor’s Box that includes an on-field recognition during the game
