Medallions and Certificates
A specially cast, pewter medallion will be given to each 2019 League Excellence Award recipient upon check-in at the 2020 Innovations Conference registration desk. Recipients are encouraged to wear their medallions throughout the conference. For those unable to attend, medallions will be sent to the college president or chancellor in late March.
Each recipient will also receive an honorary Excellence Award certificate. All certificates will be mailed to the college president or chancellor in late March.

Innovations Conference Events
All 2019 Excellence Award recipients are invited to attend the 2020 Innovations Conference, at which special events are planned to celebrate their accomplishment. Event participation is celebratory; attendance is not required to receive this award. The League does not provide an honorarium, travel expenses, or compensation for conference registration. Registration payment, refund, and cancellation policies apply.
League Awards Reception
At this exclusive event on Monday evening, Excellence Award and Innovation of the Year Award recipients will be congratulated and celebrated for their exemplary work. (Due to space limitations, this event is for 2019 award recipients only.)
Excellence Award Recipient Highlights
Recipients will be featured in the following ways while on site:
- Photos will be taken of recipients in the League booth during the Sunday evening reception. Wear your medallions and bring your colleagues with you for a commemorative photo. A digital photo album will be created on Pinterest for sharing.
- Recipient photos will be featured in a slideshow at the Excellence Awards Celebration and Closing General Session. (See FAQ page for recipient instructions.)
Excellence Awards Celebration and Closing General Session
The closing session on Wednesday pays special tribute to Excellence Award recipients. Awards Programs will be distributed to recipients as they enter the ballroom. As the session comes to a close, recipients will participate in a ceremonial donning of Excellence Award medallions. This is a moving event that you will not want to miss! (Friends, family members, and colleagues of awards recipients are welcome to attend the closing session at no cost.)
