The WSU Administrative Professional Advisory Council (APAC) is accepting nominations for the 2021 Administrative Professional (AP) Contribution Awards. The awards recognize administrative professionals who have made exceptional contributions to Washington State University and their respective areas or units.

To nominate a deserving WSU AP for a contribution award, submit a nomination form, along with a letter(s) of recommendation, by 5 p.m. (PST) on March 31, 2021.

Nominations should highlight contributions made by employees including, but not limited to, productivity; innovative problem solving, positive working relationships, and university or community service that goes beyond expected job responsibilities.

Exceptional is defined as going above and beyond the expected or required job performance; making a unique difference in the workplace; and/or performance that has far-reaching, compelling impacts to their work area or the university.

A total of six awards will be selected based on representation and work location. Award recipients receive $1000 and winners will be announced at APAC’s May meeting.
