FLATE Award process includes a 2-3 month nomination time window for anyone to nominate a deserving colleague working in manufacturing education. After then nominations close, FLATE staff sort the nominees into three categories; review individual nominations and applications and submit the nominee package to the Awards committee. The committee members individually reviews and score the nominees using a rubric the committee developed and has refined over the years. A short conference call is the venue for compiling the scores and final discussions and awardee selection. The committee selections are submitted to the FLATE leadership team, who contacts the winners.
Congratulations again to our 2014 FLATE Awardees who so strongly support manufacturing education and training in our state. We look forward to your nominations next summer for the 2015 FLATE Secondary Educator of the Year; 2015 FLATE Post-Secondary Educator of the Year, and the 2015 FLATE Distinguished Service to Manufacturing Education Award.
