Western Section awards information


February 22, 2016 – It is time for Western Section members to nominate their colleagues for the WSASAS awards! Deadline for award nominations is March 28. 

The WSASAS awards are:

  • Young Scientist
  • Extension
  • Distinguished Teacher
  • Distinguished Service

As a reminder, there are perks for nominating your peers. The WSASAS will give $50 to the nominators of each award winner! So, if you nominate a colleague for an award and they win, you receive $50 to boost the celebration events or to put in your pocket.

The WSASAS awards showcase the contributions and accomplishments of Western Section outstanding members. Therefore, you, as a nominator, provide an important service to the WSASAS by nominating worthy colleagues. More importantly, you honor your fellow colleagues by taking time to demonstrate to others their valuable contribution to WSASAS and agriculture.

Unfortunately, the Awards Committee receives only a few nominations each year — sometimes just one nomination per award. Please realize that very generous donors sponsor each award and provide monetary gifts for the winners. When only a few nominations are submitted each year, it sends a not-so-positive message to the donors that we may not be grateful for their support.

Western Section Members nominate your colleagues here.

The deadline for WSASAS award nominations is March 28.
