Please note

Self-nominations for any of the above listed awards will not be accepted. Individuals may not be nominated for more than one award. The committee will use discretion if an individual is nominated for two concurrent awards and will move the nomination to the appropriate award category based on their best judgment. Additionally, if a nominee meets and exemplifies the criteria for an award other than the one he/she was nominated for, the committee will use clear and concise judgment in deciding to move or not to move the individual’s nomination to a more suitable award category.

All submissions will be verified to confirm that individuals are active members of the University of Washington. Hard copy nominations will be considered ineligible and are not accepted. Previous recipients are also ineligible.
