ESWP Awards
Nomination Form

In conjunction with our National Engineers Week program, it is our goal this year to recognize an exemplary engineer in two categories, a STEM educator, and an outstanding project or projects from the Western Pennsylvania region. (Past practice has been to award deserving projects in more than one category.)  To that end, a Selection Committee has been established within the ESWP Board of Directors and will make selections based upon the criteria as listed below. The attention that these awards will bring will highlight the important contributions engineers, contractors, and educators make to our society. It is the hope that these awards will represent a meaningful impetus in attracting the best minds to the field and encouraging those in the field to excel at their work.

Awards will be presented at a date and format to be announced – while we hope to gather in-person, it is likely that the awards will be presented in a “virtual” format.

Nominations for ESWP Engineer of the Year, ESWP Young Engineer of the Year, ESWP Educator of the Year, and ESWP Project of the Year can be submitted by any member of ESWP, its affiliated technical societies, or member companies. The Committee seeks nominations that exhibit evidence of leadership, innovation, and service to the engineering profession, education profession, and society.
