In preparation for IdahoRID’s 40th anniversary celebration, the Awards Committee is requesting your valuable input!  Please take a few moments to nominate an outstanding individual who exemplifies character, leadership and dedication to supporting the mission of IdahoRID and the profession of interpreting.    

Each category represents excellence in a specific area:
*Community Interpreting, OR Educational Interpreting, OR Religious Interpreting, OR VRS Interpreting (currently working in one of these arenas)
*Outstanding Student Achievement (currently an interpreting student)
*Giving by Acting (volunteerism and collaboration)
 *Lifetime Achievement Award

Nominees must hold IdahoRID membership in good standing.  To nominate an individual for any of the above categories, please submit a 250-500 word nomination essay or video submission by February 10th to awards@idahorid.org.  Depending on the number of nominations received from each category, the committee will make their selections.  **IdahoRID board members request that they not be nominated for awards.**

We look forward to receiving your submissions!!
