The Irrigation Association and Irrigation Foundation opened the nomination process for the 2019 awards program.

These awards recognize both individuals and projects that set the standard for making significant contributions to the advancement of the irrigation industry.

“Each year, I am excited to see the nominations for all of our awards,” said IA CEO and Foundation Executive Director Deborah Hamlin. “There are so many talented individuals throughout our industry that deserve recognition. I’m sure that the nominations we receive this year will once again not disappoint.”

The following awards are now open for nominations:

  • Industry Achievement Award—the highest honor given by the IA—recognizes an individual from an industry firm who has made outstanding contributions to the development of the irrigation industry.
  • Innovator Award—honors individuals who have made significant, tangible contributions to the industry within the past five years.
  • Vanguard Award—honors an innovative project in the irrigation industry executed by a team of individuals, companies, organizations or other group entities. Self-made and peer nominations are acceptable.
  • Excellence in Education Award—recognizes an individual who is actively teaching or has formerly taught irrigation, water management and/or water conservation in affiliation with a two- or four-year institution.

Nominations for each award will be open through Jan. 31, 2019. Winners will be announced during Smart Irrigation Month’s Technology Tuesday on July 9, 2019. Winners also will be recognized during the 2019 Irrigation Show & Education Conference in Las Vegas.
