Our society has many members who deserve recognition for outstanding achievements, contributions, and service in weed science, but recognition can only come after nomination. The success of the WSSA Awards Program depends on the efforts of WSSA members as nominators. Now is the time to begin preparing nominations as the September 30, 2020 deadline will be here soon. Please take the time to nominate so the society can recognize deserving members and students. (Some awards have not been given at past meetings due to lack of nominations.)
Information and instructions for nominations for the awards to be presented at the February 2021 meeting in San Antonio, TX (or virtually depending on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic) are available on the WSSA website (https://wssa.net/society/awards-2/ ).
All award nominations must be submitted electronically as a single pdf file. The deadline is September 30th for all awards except the Undergraduate Research Award (Dec 20), Excellence in Journalism Award (Oct 31), Grad Student Travel Awards (Oct 31), and the Photo Contest (TBD). 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 cannot 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.
