Two prizes are available — honoring one individual staff member and one team. The chosen individual will receive a $2,000 award. The chosen team will share a $3,000 prize.

The deadline for application is Feb. 28.

Qualifying innovations may be a process, product, method, system, program or service. Nominations should represent an improvement or increase in:

· Efficiency.

· Productivity.

· Cost savings.

· Achievement of environmental or health and well-being goals.

· Enhancement of the culture and climate of the university.
