Award Nominations

Award Nominations

The ASLO Awards cover all career stages and activities, providing the opportunity to recognize outstanding accomplishments across the aquatic science community. We seek nominees that reflect ASLO’s commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, identity, and geography. ASLO Awardees are chosen exclusively from member-submitted nominations, so your nominations are critical to ensuring that scientists of diverse backgrounds are considered and represented in the ASLO Awards program.

Nominations are short, simple to make, and can be submitted electronically via the nomination form below.  You must be logged in to see the form.  Any aquatic scientist can be nominated for ASLO awards, with the exception of current ASLO Board and Award Committee members. Nominations for awards to individuals can be made by any ASLO member, except ASLO Board members or Award Committee members. The same limitations apply to the awards for papers (Raymond L. Lindeman or John Martin Awards) with the additional limitation that members may not nominate a paper they have co-authored. Please see this article by Wickland and Pollard (2019) in L&O Bulletin for an overview of the awards selection process.

Please note an important change to the awards nominations process: ASLO is eliminating the 3-year eligibility window for nomination packages within an award category.  Previous nominations must be resubmitted to be considered in this award cycle.  Resubmissions could be revised, if desired. The transmittal date on the primary nomination letter in a resubmitted package must be updated to reflect the current awards cycle.

Nominations must be submitted by Friday, 28 October 2021 at 11:59 PM CDT (GMT -05:00).


You must be logged into the ASLO website to view the nomination form.  If you do not see it below, please log in, then return to this page.

Award nominations may be submitted by any current ASLO member. The nomination form will not be visible unless you have logged into the ASLO website.
