Know someone who's a visionary in the the groundwater field? Know someone who came up with an innovating solution to a difficult project? Don't just pat him or her on the back. Submit a nomination for an NGWA award. Now that's recognition.

We all work hard. But we all know someone who works harder. Why not get that person some recognition?
The National Ground Water Association has opened nominations for its annual awards recognizing professional excellence, projects and service within NGWA and the broader groundwater industry.
Maybe you know someone who always goes two extra miles for customers. Maybe a coworker volunteers all the time for groundwater initiatives. Maybe you just have a favorite manager or business owner who shows unusual leadership and vision. Tell the MGWA about it, and get that person the accolades they deserve (but would humbly thank everyone else for).
The NGWA’s deadline is June 1, so it’s right around the corner. Winners find out in September and awards are presented at the annual convention, which is held Dec. 3-6 in Nashville, Tenn.
