The mission of the IECA Awards program is to recognize outstanding achievements in the erosion and sediment control industry.
Nomination Rules and Guidelines
Nominators: Only current IECA members may nominate an individual, project, or program for an award.
Nominees: See the award descriptions for any limitations on whom or what can be nominated.
Deadline: Nominations deadlines will be set each year by the Awards Committee. Deadlines are established each year to allow for promotion before the annual conference. Award nominations are due October 31, 2018.
Process for Submittal: Nominations must be submitted electronically as specified in the Call for Nominations announcement.
Content: The content of a proposal varies according to the specific award. Two categories of content have been established: mandatory content and optional content. For both mandatory and optional material, the IECA Awards Committee reserves the right to validate the content of any nomination proposal, to request supplementary information from the nominator or, independently, seek any supplementary information it deems necessary in their review process.
Mandatory Content - All nominations must contain an awards application with the completed contact information for the Nominator and Nominee and the mandatory content specified in each award category.
Optional Content - The nominator may include optional content highlighting the attributes of the individual to supplement the mandatory content. The optional content is the nominator's opportunity to "make the case" for the nomination proposal for the IECA award.
