Call for Lifetime and Mid-Career Award Nominations
The Consortium recognizes stellar individuals in the state through two awards: Lifetime Achievement and Polaris Mid-Career. We are looking for nominations for both. Awards will be given at the 2008 Conference in Rochester.
The submission deadline for both awards is June 30, 2008.
The Lifetime Achievement Award is given to a person (or organization) who has earned a reputation for making significant contributions in the fields of GIS or LIS that have improved the quality of life for the people of Minnesota. The Lifetime Achievement Award started in 1993 and is given to the best in our field. It is not given out every year. This prestigious award is reserved to acknowledge a lifetime of well-recognized contributions. There are currently 18 winners of this award.
The Polaris Leadership Award for mid-career professionals began in 2003. Just as Polaris is a triple star, so we recognize three leaders annually. The award recognizes three "stars" who are inspiring and leading us through their contributions, energy, and creativity.
Details of both awards are listed under MN GIS/LIS Activities on the consortium website: http://www.mngislis.org. Text under each award name lists criteria and details on how to submit a nomination.
