An individual may be recognized for leadership, scholarship, or lifetime contributions. The individual does not need to be active on the national level, and may not receive the Award of Excellence more than once in five years. Individuals cannot self-nominate.
Please note this award is not made posthumously. Nominees must be living at the time of nomination.
