Institutions wishing to nominate their initiatives for the 2019 Awards of Excellence are required to submit their initiative using UEDA’s Application Portal. The deadline for applications is midnight (local submission time) June 15, 2019. Finalists will be notified around July 1, 2019. Finalist presentations and Awards Ceremony will occur at the UEDA Annual Summit in Reno, Nevada September 29 – October 2, 2019. All selected finalists must attend the Summit in person—NO EXCEPTIONS.

Open Nominations Format Returns for 2019

Once again, non-UEDA members may nominate one project or initiative for an application fee per entry. UEDA members may nominate multiple projects at no cost as part of the value of their UEDA membership. Non-members will be charged $200 per entry. The deadline is the same for both members and non-members. All submissions are judged based on a standard set of criteria, regardless of membership status or application or late fees paid.

Now all Awards of Excellence Nominations can be completed through the UEDA Application Portal. Through this portal, applications can be submitted for Summit Workshops, Lightning Rounds, and the Awards of Excellence. The portal also has a downloadable Awards worksheet to assist in completing the online nomination process. You can begin your nomination here.
