Here is a brief description of each of the awards for which we are soliciting nominations:
THE HAT'S OFF AWARD
The Hat's Off Award is designed to recognize Society members who, in the course of their SFPE assignments, put forth that extra effort ... walk that extra mile ... to ensure that the effort expended was the absolute best.
THE ROLF H. JENSEN AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING COMMITTEE SERVICE
The Rolf H. Jensen Award recognizes persons who have rendered unselfish, extraordinary and unusual service on a SFPE committee. The committee service must contribute to Society goals and to the profession of fire protection engineering.
THE HAROLD E. NELSON SERVICE AWARD
The Board of Directors created the Harold E. Nelson Service Award in 1987 to recognize dedicated and inspired service to the ideas and goals of the Society. The award is named after Harold E. "Bud" Nelson, P.E., whose parallel fire protection engineering and Society careers are truly worthy of emulation.
THE D. PETER LUND AWARD
The Board of Directors established the D. Peter Lund Award in 1997 to recognize significant contributions to the advancement of the professional recognition of the fire protection engineer. This award is named in honor of D. Peter Lund, CAE, the first Executive Director of the Society.
FIRE PROTECTION PERSON OF THE YEAR AWARD*
This Award was created in 1973 to recognize significant achievement in the protection of humanity and the environment from the ravages of unwanted fire and an outstanding contribution to fire protection from outside the membership of SFPE which is broad in scope and has apparent lasting effects.
THE JOHN L. BRYAN MENTORING AWARD
This award, established in 2007, is in recognition of John L. Bryan and his more than fifty years of commitment and dedication to education and mentoring students and practicing fire protection engineers. This award is presented to an individual who exemplifies commitment and dedication to educating, training and advising fire protection engineers. The recipients are recognized for freely and unselfishly providing their expertise to other individuals in order to assist them in enhancing their education, advancing their careers, and expanding their experience and knowledge in fire protection engineering.
THE DAVID A. LUCHT LAMP OF KNOWLEDGE AWARD*
This award honors an organization, company, or individual that has contributed substantially to increasing the opportunities for higher education in fire protection engineering. The award is named for David A. Lucht in recognition of his 25 years of leadership and dedication to the Worcester Polytechnic Institute Center for Fire Safety Studies and his tireless efforts on behalf of the fire protection engineering profession.
THE ARTHUR B. GUISE MEDAL*
The medal recognizes eminent achievement in advancing the science of fire protection engineering. The achievement may be in research, development, design, innovation, management, education or literature.
STUDENT SCHOLAR AWARD*
This award was established in 2006 by the Board of Governors of the SFPE Foundation to recognize students that are performing research to advance the science and practice of Fire Protection Engineering. The Foundation's Board of Governors makes the selection annually. Nominations are accepted from undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students and are judged on scientific quality and relevance of their research to the fire protection engineering profession.
