The Region 6 Awards Program

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

  • All Region awards can be nominated by any Region member. There are no Area awards any longer.
  • All award nominations and endorsement letters will be submitted online via Survey Monkey Apply. There are no longer any forms or emailed or paper nominations.

The deadline for Region Award nominations submission is July 1 by 11:59pm Pacific time, including endorsements.

Go to https://apply-ieee.smapply.io to submit nominations.  The site will ask for you to identify endorsers and then will invite the endorsers to submit letters.  Please allow enough time for endorsers to submit their letters by the July 1 due date.  

Purpose and Value of the Awards Program

The awards program honors IEEE volunteers, engineers, and teachers 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.
