ESWP Awards
Nomination Form

In conjunction with our National Engineers Week program, it is our goal each year to recognize exemplary individuals and outstanding projects from the Western Pennsylvania region.

To that end, the Annual Banquet Committee has been established within the ESWP elected Board of Directors and will make selections based upon the criteria as listed below, and included on the nomination forms. Awards will be presented in a ceremony during the ESWP Annual Banquet in February. The attention that these awards will bring, highlight the important contributions engineering and education 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.

Nominations can be submitted by any member of ESWP, its affiliated technical societies or member companies. The Committee will seek candidates that exhibit evidence of leadership, innovation, and service to the engineering profession and society.
