In the last five years (since 2018), Tomball ISD Communications has earned one Crystal Commendation Certificate of Merit, 10 Best of Category Awards, 52 Gold Star Awards, 20 Silver Star Awards, and seven Bronze Star Awards.

Each year, TSPRA recognizes communicators in school districts, education foundations, education associations and organizations for their work in print and electronic media categories. There are 47 main categories covering various media such as newsletters, programs, posters, reports, writing, image/identity packages, photography, graphics, video, electronic presentations, mobile apps, campaigns, events and web sites. 

For the first 47 categories, the entries are divided into three divisions based on the number of students the district, foundation or organizations serves - under 15,000 students; 15,000 to 40,000 students; and over 40,000 students. Independent judges evaluate and score each entry based on its own merit. Bronze, Silver and Gold Stars are awarded based on set criteria. Finally, the judges review their highest scoring Gold Star winners and select a Best of Category for each division in each of the 47 categories.
