The ESWN Service Award recognizes an ESWN member who demonstrates outstanding commitment to the mission of ESWN. Primary criteria for the award include, but are not limited to any or all of the following:
- leadership in activities that contribute to the professional development, career advancement, and/or mentoring of other ESWN members;
- enhancement of ESWN and its membership experience through partnerships with other organizations;
- unparalleled commitment to the success of other ESWN members through her personal connections, advice and/or support.
Current members of the ESWN Leadership Board are not eligible. Former members of the Leadership Board may be nominated for extraordinary service to ESWN since the end of their position on the Leadership Board.
Nominations will be accepted annually and may be made by any ESWN member. A committee appointed by the ESWN Leadership Board will review the nominations and if an appropriate candidate is found, a selection is made and sent to the ESWN Leadership Board for approval. The award recipient will be featured in a “member spotlight” and publicly recognized at an ESWN-organized reception (e.g., the annual reception at the AGU meeting).
