FAME Deadline Extended - Act Now!


Submit Your Nomination for the FAME Awards

This Friday—October 17, 2016—is the last day to submit your nomination for the 2017 Foodservice Achievement Management Excellence (FAME) Awards! You don’t want to miss this special opportunity to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of colleagues in your district, state or even across the country.

The awards recognize those who raise the school nutrition bar for others to follow. These are individuals who have triumphed over challenges and provided 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 a nomination at www.fameawards.net.

The categories are:

  • Golden School Foodservice Director of the Year Award (bestowed on a director with more than 12 years of director experience)
  • Silver Leadership Award (given to a director with 12 or fewer years of experience)
  • Silver Spirit Award (for an individual in a management position such as an assistant director or coordinator)
  • Silver Rising Star Award (for a director with 5 or fewer years of director experience)
  • Silver Special Achievement Award (for a director of a program with 10,000 or fewer enrollment)
  • Silver Friend of Child Nutrition Award (for advocates who support school nutrition beyond the scope of their normal professional duties; child nutrition directors and department heads are not eligible)

Winning a FAME award is a tremendous honor, but being nominated is worthwhile, 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.

To complete the online nomination form, or to learn more details and eligibility rules about these awards, visit www.fameawards.net. The FAME awards are sponsored by Basic American Foods, Schwan’s Food Service, Inc., and Tyson Foods, Inc. They will be presented on Sunday, January 22, 2017, in conjunction with SNA’s annual School Nutrition Industry Conference at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Fla.
