Call for Nominations: SIGGRAPH Distinguished Educator Award

By Erica Hruby

The ACM SIGGRAPH Executive Committee has established a new award—the SIGGRAPH Distinguished Educator Award—to honor educators in computer graphics and interactive techniques who are making a significant impact on any educational level, from grade school through higher education.

The Distinguished Educator Award—which will be given annually, beginning in 2019—will honor members who are innovative in their approach to education and who are making a difference in their respective disciplines through leadership and student engagement.

The awardee will be selected by a committee via nominations. Members of the SIGGRAPH community will be solicited for nominations.

The deadline for nominations is January 31.
