National Technology Medal nominations



Nominations opened this month for the second round of the National Technology Medals, which are awarded periodically by the president of the United States to recognize individuals and companies for “outstanding contributions to improving the well being of the United States through the promotion of technology or technological manpower.”

Any U.S. citizen or U.S.-owned company is eligible. Persons connected with the administration or selection procedures for the medal are not eligible during the period of their service or for 5 years thereafter. It is anticipated that no more than 12 medals will be awarded on any one occasion.
