    The Selection Committee will evaluate nominations and determine the successful individual(s) or team(s) (as appropriate) for each award category.

    Any Selection Committee member who accepts a nomination for an award will be required to withdraw from the Committee and a replacement must be designated by the SDC.  If an SDC member, who is also a member of the Selection Committee, nominates an individual/team, or provides a supporting letter, he/she will be required to withdraw from the Selection Committee.

    All awards are based on the merit of the nomination.  The Selection Committee may decide not to select any nominees, or to select fewer nominees than the number of awards available, in a particular award category/categories.  In that case, no award, or a reduced number of awards, will be presented for the particular category/categories.
