Awards

The WSC recognizes contributions to the field through the following awards:

Nominations

Each year, the WSC solicits email nominations for all awards (other than the President’s Award).  Anyone may submit a nomination.  Neither the nominator nor the nominee needs to be a member of the WSC. Simply either (1) prepare a short biographical sketch of the nominee (100 words) and a link to the nominee’s online bio and curriculum vitae or résumé; or (2) if no online bio and curriculum vitae or résumé are available, submit a biographical sketch of the nominee (500 words maximum) explaining why the person is deserving of the particular award.

Press here to submit a nomination. The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 3, 2024. Please email Alyssa Chamberlain, the Chairperson of the Awards Committee if you have any questions.
