The Utah State Advisory Council on Science and Technology is responsible for administering the award and for recommending nominees to Governor Herbert. This year, nominations will follow a simplified, two-step submittal process. A one-page form is all that is needed to initiate a nomination. This form can be accessed via the web at: http://business.utah.gov/governors-medals. Nominees selected from the first round of applications may be asked to submit a more complete application package that would include letters of recommendation.
Nominations can be made in one of five categories: Academic, Science Education, Industry-Individual (independent inventors and entrepreneurs), Industry-Company (for- and non-profit company) and Government. Any Utah citizen or organization may submit nominations. Nominees must meet a residency of Utah requirement detailed in the “Procedures and Criteria for Selection” document located on the internet at the Governor’s Office of Economic Development website, http://business.utah.gov/Procedure-Criteria. The nominations must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Monday September 17, 2012 and should be addressed as follows:
