Awards

The Region 6 Awards Program

The Region 6 awards program is now substantially different from all previous years. In brief, here are the important changes:

  • All Section awards will directly become nominations for Region awards.
  • All award nominations and endorsement letters will be submitted online. There are no forms any longer. No more emailed or paper nominations.
  • There are many new award categories added.

Purpose and Value of the Awards Program

The awards program honors IEEE volunteers, engineers, teachers, and companies that support the profession within Region 6. This is important because those who contribute to IEEE and to our community should be recognized and thanked for their hard work, dedication, and contributions. There are four categories of awards: for individuals, companies, IEEE activities, and IEEE “organizational units” (groups).
