Any university employee may nominate another eligible employee for the President’s Award and/or the Governor’s Award. Don’t miss this chance to nominate one of your fellow employees for these annual awards!

  • The President’s Award for Excellence recognizes the outstanding contributions and consistently excellent performance of salaried classified and university staff employees, as well as certain administrative and professional faculty personnel. Recipients receive a $2,000 cash prize. All nominees will be honored at a reception in the spring where 2018 award winners will also be announced.
  • Virginia Tech is also collecting nominations for the Governor’s Award for Public Service, which publicly recognizes and rewards deserving employees for the work state employees do every day on behalf of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Recipients receive a $500 award and are honored at a reception hosted by the Governor each summer.

Review the eligibility information and nomination guidelines and instructions for both awards online. All nominations must be submitted electronically by 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 16. If you have additional questions, contact Lesa Young at 540-231-1207.
