2019 NACDEP Awards

New Requirements for ALL Award Nominations

All documents submitted as a part of the awards process must:

  • Be converted to PDFs prior to uploading
  • Comply with the page limit specified for each document.  Pages must be single spaced, have 1” margins on all borders and fonts must be at least 12 points. 
  • Nominations submitted that do not comply with these guidelines or other guidelines outlined in this document will not be eligible for review.

NEW! JCEP Creative Excellence Award (Individual and Team) Check it out!

Note changes made to the Distinguished Career award:

  • 3 page vita was added as a support document.
  • Each land-grant university can only submit one nomination per year. If duplicates are received, the awards committee will notify the nominators and the nominators will be responsible for selecting their university’s nominee.


Reminder of changes made in prior years:

·       A program or process can now only seek one award.   

·       Also, awards can now be submitted under a “national” category rather than a specific region.

Awards packets will be accepted until 11:59 PM ET on Monday, March 4.  Details on each award category, as well as links to the on-line application process (which will accept up to six separate uploads per awards packet) can be found in the award descriptions.

Winners will be honored at a ceremony at the NACDEP Conference, June 9-13 in Asheville, NC.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to seeing all the good work done over the last year by NACDEP members.
