Young Professionals Achievement Award (previously GOLD)

Award Description: 

This award is to recognize those substantive projects or achievements of a relatively short nature (one to three years), but which have left an undeniable imprint on the fabric of IEEE Young Professionals operations.

The award will be based on a selection that recognizes individuals or teams involved with Young Professionals activities who are recognized for singular achievement in the development and completion of a project(s) or activity(ies) which are directed to the fulfillment of one or more of the Young Professionals goals and/or objectives.

The accomplishments of the candidate should be of "significant performance" and should have made a distinguishing contribution to Young Professionals. The focus should be on volunteering for IEEE, MGA, or its organizational units, not on professional achievement.
