Get recognized for your contribution to SWE. Apply for WE Local Awards!

Are you looking for ways for you or your collegiate/graduate group to be acknowledged for your contribution toward SWE? Do you consider yourself a remarkable individual who deserves recognition for your involvement with SWE community?

To recognize your efforts, WE Locals will offer a number of awards with much of the flavor of the Society-level awards program. The application period for WE Local Awards will run until September 30. Recipients will have the ability to choose at which WE Local they accept their award. Download the new WE Local Awards packet explaining the nomination process. Questions can be directed to awards-chair@swe.org.

SWE Collegiate Member Awards

The Guiding Star Award recognizes exceptional collegiate leaders with at least two (2) years of SWE membership at the end of the previous fiscal year who have made outstanding contributions to SWE, the engineering community, their campus, and the community. A maximum of fifteen (15) awards will be presented annually.

The Rising Star Award recognizes SWE collegiate members with less than 2 years of SWE membership at the end of the previous fiscal year who have made outstanding contributions to SWE, the engineering community, their campus, and the community. A maximum of fifteen (15) awards will be presented annually.

Group Awards

GradSWE Groups can apply as an independent group or as part of their school’s section too! Any group of Collegiate or Professional SWE members that support the SWE mission are eligible for these awards. This can include a SWE Section, SWE Affiliate (including community college affiliate groups and sections), Members At Large, Affinity Group, Corporate Employee Resource Group (ERG), or other group of SWE members.

The Outstanding Outreach Event Award recognizes a group or groups who plan and carry out a high-quality outreach event to inspire future engineers. A maximum of twelve (12) awards will be presented annually, two each to small, medium, and large professional sections or groups and two each to small, medium, and large collegiate sections or groups.

The Outstanding Professional Development Event Award recognizes a group or groups who plan and carry out a high-quality professional development event to help women achieve their professional goals. A maximum of twelve (12) awards will be presented annually, two each to small, medium, and large professional sections or groups and two each to small, medium, and large collegiate sections or groups.

The Joint Professional/Collegiate Event Award is jointly bestowed upon a professional SWE Group and a Collegiate SWE group who have planned and implemented a joint SWE event between the two groups. A maximum of five (5) awards may be presented annually.

Please NOTE that, if you win a WE Local award, you are still eligible to apply for a SWE individual award in the same fiscal year (including a SWE award that corresponds to the same WE Local award). If you have previously won an individual SWE award, you are then ineligible to win the corresponding WE Local Award.

Get the recognition for your individual and group efforts! Let the WE Local conferences help celebrate your success and accomplishments. Apply for the WE Local Awards by September 30.
