Judging Process

To ensure professionalism and transparency, a judging panel made up of respected industry professionals with no conflicts of interest are chosen to examine the submitted nominations. The criteria of these nominations request all nominators to complete a detailed document which includes supporting testimonials. The judges may request an interview with the nominee and additional documentation to support the submission. Each judge will score each submission based on the testimonials and documentation provided by the award nominators. The aggregate highest score will determine the winner of the award.

The winner will be notified in the second week of May to allow them the opportunity to attend the Termite Professional Conference Gala Dinner to accept their award.
