Innovation of the Year Award Recipient Recognition

Pins and Certificates

Each Innovation of the Year Award recipient will receive a commemorative pin, an Innovation of the Year Award certificate, and a copy of the League Awards Program. These items will be distributed at the next Innovations Conference (see next FAQ) or mailed to the president or chancellor of each participating college for distribution the following spring (around mid-April).

Innovations Conference Events

Each year's Innovation of the Year Award recipients will be recognized at the following Innovations Conference. For instance, 2022-2023 recipients will be honored at the 2024 Innovations Conference. (Please note: Neither honoraria nor expenses are provided to award recipients.) Recipients who attend this event:

  • Pick up their Innovation of the Year Award lapel pins when they check in onsite.
  • Are invited to an exclusive League Awards reception on March 19 to celebrate their efforts.
  • Wear their lapel pins to the Closing General Session and League Awards Celebration on March 20 in order to receive a copy of the League Awards Program. At this session, all 2022-2023 Innovation of the Year Award and 2023-2024 Excellence Award recipients will be asked to stand for recognition.
