NAIA National Awards Day

May 29, 2014

2013-14 NATIONAL AWARD WINNERSNOMINATION FORMS

The creation of an annual NAIA National Awards Day in September, during which all national award winners will be revealed in a special video announcement on NAIA.org was approved at the 2014 National Convention in April.

Highlighting all NAIA national award winners at the start of the academic year will provide a coordinated recognition for the distinguished members of the NAIA community and more opportunities for institutions and conferences to champion their nominees at the same time.

In addition to improved marketing of awards, a centralized process and universal deadlines for all awards will  allow the nomination and selection process to conclude by the end of summer.

June 15

Nomination deadline to the conference for the nine awards that have a conference selection process (see below.)

July 15 Conference selections are sent to the National Office, which distributes the nominations to designated selection committee. Conferences are free to recognize their winners.
Aug. 15 Selection committees decided on the national winner.
Sept. 15 National Office formally notifies the winners one week before the National Awards Day. Award winners are recognized on the website and in person at Convention the following April.
