This award was established in 1971 by the Local Sections Committee to recognize outstanding events by the local sections. In 2019, the ANS Education, Training and Workforce Development Division fully-funded the award to add a monetary stipend.
These are evaluated by a subcommittee composed of individuals from the Local Sections Committee and ANS Education, Training and Workforce Development Division, which selects the awardees. The national Honors and Awards Committee may consult as appropriate.
