To apply for the award, fill out the application form. The application requires an essay of approximately 250 words about why you would like to attend a ticketed event at Annual Conference and how it would benefit you professionally. Applications are due by Tuesday, April 26. Winners will be notified by Friday, May 13. The committee does not consider geographic location, age, sex, religion, race or national origin in the award selection process.
