Professional and Career Development


The Institute of Transportation Engineers’ (ITE) annual international awards program honors outstanding achievements in transportation and distinguished service to ITE. The awards bestow international recognition upon the recipients and increase the public’s awareness of the role and responsibilities of the transportation professional.

The 2020 Awards brochure contains all the information you need, including updated award descriptions, eligibility requirements, judging criteria, and a direct link to the online awards submission portal, which can be accessed at

2020 ITE Awards Brochure

Please verify submission deadlines for each award in the Awards brochure. The deadline for many awards is March 1; however, the process for submitting several of the District/Section Awards requires that submissions be sent to your District Award Coordinator who will then enter submissions online by April 1.

Winners will be notified by May 1 and announced at the Joint ITE International and Southern District Annual Meeting and Exhibition, August 9-12, 2020. 

Please note that nominations are not submitted through the awards submission portal for the Burton W. Marsh Award for Distinguished Service, the Theodore M. Matson Memorial Award, or the ITE Coordinating Council Best Project and Outstanding Volunteer Award. Please see the brochure for procedures.
