Awards

Awards Recognized on the International Level

Each year ITE works with the various judging committees and Councils to review the awards criteria to ensure that the awards are always recognizing the merits of individuals, projects or organizations that best represent the true nature of the award.  This review is done in the early fall and completed by late October.  At the same time, the headquarters works with the Districts to ensure their District Awards Coordinators are selected by December 1 to be included in the most current version of the Awards Brochure. This is published annually on ITE’s web site by January 1. This is the same time that the Open Water platform is open for submissions. Award information is also available here: https://www.ite.org/professional-and-career-development/awards/
