How are recipients selected? 

ISCA’s Professional Recognition Committee selects the award recipients.  The committee reserves the right not to present an award in any category when, in the committee’s opinion, there is insufficient evidence of outstanding contribution.  One selected, nominators will be notified so they can make plans to be present during the awards ceremony.
