Nominations now being accepted for 2021 ANS Winter Meeting awards

June 2, 2021, 12:00PMANS News

For more than 50 years, the ANS Honors and Awards Program has recognized outstanding achievements and meritorious service in the various fields served by our Society.

The recipients of the national awards listed below will be honored on November 30 during the opening plenary of the ANS Winter Meeting. Honorees will be notified of their selection by October.

All members are encouraged to review the nomination requirements for these awards and consider nominating a qualified colleague. Many ANS awards are open to non-ANS members, and nominating colleagues who are not members is one way to foster new ANS relationships.

For the first time, ANS will be awarding the Social Responsibility in the Nuclear Community honor this year. The award recognizes an individual, group, or organization for outstanding efforts in social responsibility promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion or inclusive community building in the nuclear community. It comes with a plaque and a $1,000 monetary award.

More information on each award, including past award recipients and nomination forms, is available online. There you will also find information about awards administered by ANS’s professional divisions. If you have questions about a specific award, please contact Hash Hashemian, chair of the Honors and Awards Committee.

The deadline for submission of nominations for Winter Meeting awards is August 1. Because of the large number of nominations typically submitted, late nominations are not accepted.
