Nominations Open for 2015 SBE Awards

Do you know an SBE member or chapter that you believe goes above and beyond the call of duty in his or her job, the broadcasting industry or to the SBE? Often these efforts go unrecognized. Don’t let that happen this year. Nominate a deserving individual or SBE chapter for a National SBE Award.

In the last few years, the SBE Awards Committee has added two new awards to better recognize you; Best Social Media Site and Chapter Engineer of the Year. Here is a list of a few more award categories that will be accepting nominations: Best Chapter Newsletter, Most Interactive Chapter, Best Chapter Website, Best Social Media Site, Best Technical Article, Book or Program by an SBE Member, the Technology Award and Best Chapter Newsletter.

The top two awards presented each year are the Robert W. Flanders Engineer of the Year and James C. Wulliman Educator of the Year.

To nominate a worthy individual or chapter, go to the SBE awards page to download and submit the nomination form. Nominations are due by June 15, 2015. Winners will be notified in July, and the awards will be presented during the national meeting in October.

All the national awards were created to recognize the efforts of members and chapters. For more information, contact Megan Clappe at

There are a number of award categories to choose from.

Did your chapter offer a convention or conference this year? Does your chapter have a great website, social media outlet or newsletter? We have awards to fit all of these categories and more for SBE Chapters.

How about individual members in your chapter or across the United States. Is there one in particular who educates broadcast engineers through writings, teachings, programs and employment? The James C Wulliman SBE Educator of the Year award would be a good fit for that person.

This year, the SBE began the Chapter Engineer of the Year award, we have received a number of nominations. Has your chapter taken advantage of it?

There is still time to nominate your engineering community, let them be recognized for what they do!
