WSSA Award Nomination Deadline Extended to September 22, 2017

Due to the recent hurricanes and other events over the past couple weeks, it has been decided to move the awards nomination deadline to Friday, September 22, 2017. This extra time should allow for nomination packages to be completed. If you have not already done so, please consider nominating a worthy colleague.

As a reminder:

Information and instructions for nominations for the awards to be presented at the 2018 meeting in Arlington, VA are available on the WSSA website (http://wssa.net/society/awards-2/ ).

 All award nominations must be submitted electronically as a single pdf file. The deadline is September 22nd for all awards except the Undergraduate Research Award and the Photo Contest. Contact the subcommittee chair for questions or problems with electronic submission.

Any WSSA member who has won an outstanding service award is not eligible to receive another one for the subsequent three years. Fellows are eligible for all awards. Members of subcommittees are not eligible and can not nominate for award of their committee.

Winners of most awards will be asked to supply a biographical sketch (approximately 250 words), the names of two individuals whom the winner would like contacted with information about the award, and an electronic copy of a recent black and white picture and an informal color picture at work.
