Jackie Walorski Candy Champion Award

In 2023, NCA introduced an award in honor of the late U.S. Representative Jackie Walorksi (R-IN). The Jackie Walorski Candy Champion Award recognizes members of Congress who show a commitment to supporting the confectionery industry and the significant impact that manufacturers of chocolate, candy, gum and mints have on the U.S. economy. Representative Warlorski joined with Representative Annie Kuster (D-NH) in 2016 to create and co-chair the Congressional Candy Caucus, a bipartisan effort to acknowledge the American candy industry’s long history of creating jobs and making some of the world’s most iconic brands. Representative Warlorski continued to serve as co-chair until her passing in 2022.
