The Region 6 Awards Program

Purpose and Value of the Awards Program

One of the purposes of a professional society is to recognize the accomplishments of their community. The Region 6 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.

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

The deadline for Region Award nominations submission is September 15 (or as otherwise announced) by 11:59pm Pacific time, including endorsements.

Go to https://ieee.secure-platform.com/a/page/major_board_awards/mga-awards/region6 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 deadline.
