All nomination materials for the below awards must be submitted electronically no later than June 1, 2021 at 11:59 PM to [email protected]. Please indicate the award name in the Subject line when submitting nomination packets.

When completing nominations, please remember that the quality of supporting materials is very important. Please select supportive materials carefully. Letters should address the specific criteria for each award.

If a candidate is nominated for two awards, a complete set of supportive materials must be submitted which specifically address the criteria for each award. Nominators are urged to make sure the supportive materials clearly indicate that the candidate fulfills the exact requirements for EACH award specified.
