Judging

Each year we recognize outstanding contributions to engineering by company (both private and public), projects and by engineers. Applications are received through the professional societies, one for each of the different categories. Every society that sends at least one nomination sends a voting member.

Once the Awards Chair receives all nominations by the due date, an initial check for application completeness and adherence to nomination rules is performed. The Chair then forms a committee of judges, which consists of representatives from each nominating society. Each member of the judging committee receives and evaluates all nominations.

After nomination evaluations have been completed, judges meet to select the winners. The winners are then announced at the Annual Central Florida Engineers’ Week Banquet.
