FAME Awards Program Accepting Nominations

July 26, 2012 – Do you know of a school nutrition leader or innovator who deserves to be nominated for a national Foodservice Achievement Management Excellence (FAME) Award? For 24 years, the FAME Awards have recognized those who raise the school nutrition bar for others to follow. These are individuals who have triumphed over challenges and provide insightful and innovative solutions to the complex issues that are the hallmark of this business. If this describes you, your supervisor or a colleague, take the time to submit your nomination today.

Winning a FAME award is a tremendous honor, but being nominated is, as well. The nominations for this and other school nutrition awards programs often are used as leads and resources by School Nutrition, the flagship publication of SNA, and other foodservice media to showcase the profession’s best practices and creative strategies. Participation in the FAME Awards program gives you the chance to shine the spotlight on your district and help spread the word about the important role that school nutrition professionals play in contributing to the health and welfare of America’s children.

Please note that the criteria for three of the awards have been updated. The new nomination requirements are as follows:

  • Golden Star Director of School Nutrition Award: Individuals with more than 12 years of director-level experience qualify.
  • Silver Leadership Award: Individuals with 12 or fewer years of director-level experience will be eligible.
  • Silver Rising Star Award: Qualified individuals have five or fewer years of director-level experience in the industry.

Nominations will be taken online or via a downloadable form at www.fameawards.net until September 26, 2012. Eligible nominees include SNA members in good standing. Make sure FAME doesn’t pass you by! Send your nomination in before this year’s deadline.
