Call for nominations now open!

The Downstate Illinois Chapter of AATSP provides an annual award to recognize and celebrate the positive impact that one of our members has had on their colleagues, communities, and/or students.
What better contribution can a person make than inspiring someone else?

The winner will receive a plaque and a monetary award of $250.

Nominations can come from anyone (students, supervisors, colleagues, members of the community, etc.). The nominator does NOT need to be an AATSP member. However, the person being nominated for the award must be a current member of the Downstate Illinois Chapter of AATSP. Not sure if the person you want to nominate is a member? Email our Chapter president to confirm: We’re happy to help!

Current Chapter officers cannot submit nominations or be nominated for this award.

Individuals who have received this award previously are not eligible to receive the award again.

The deadline to submit a nomination is SEPTEMBER 22, 2023. Decisions will be made by November 1.

Nominations will be reviewed by current Chapter officers. Each officer will assign a score of 1-5 to each nomination, based on the extent of the impact and inspiration described by the nominator (1 = limited impact; 5 = extensive impact).

Submitting a nomination is easy! No need to collect letters of support. You just need to provide your info and answer 1 question.
