Nominations Sought for UW CALS Awards
Individuals will be recognized at banquet in October.

Nominations for the 2010 UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Honorary Recognition Award, Distinguished Service Award, and Distinguished Alumni Award are now open. Final nominations are due Friday, May 7.

Over the past 100 years, the College has recognized more than 500 individuals for their outstanding service with the Honorary Recognition Award.  Each has given unselfishly of time and talent, improved the lives of many, and enriched society for us all.  In 1994, the College introduced the Distinguished Service Award to recognize University faculty and staff members for meritorious service to the College and University, to citizens of Wisconsin, and to people around the nation and the world.

 In 2009, the College marked the inaugural year of the Distinguished Alumni Award, which recognizes a career of outstanding achievement through extraordinary contributions to one's chosen field or an exemplary record of public service.

As you consider possible nominees, please think about those individuals who have demonstrated leadership and have been an inspiration to others in agriculture, natural resources and the life sciences.

Awards are presented during the CALS Honorary Recognition Banquet, Oct. 21 in the Great Hall, Memorial Union, UW-Madison. The banquet is an opportunity to celebrate the connection between the College and its friends, supporters and stakeholders. Please contact Arla Dauscher, CALS External Relations ([email protected], 608-262-5784), for additional information.
