Nomination forms accepted for National Medal of Technology and Innovation candidates

From Steve Jobs to eBay to Lockheed Martin Skunk Works, they and their representatives have met the president of the United States at the White House—and accepted America’s highest honor for technological achievement and innovation.

The National Medal of Technology and Innovation (NMTI) is accepting nomination forms and letters of support at Anyone can send nominations, which are due by April 30.

The medal is awarded to individuals, teams (up to four individuals), companies, or divisions of companies for outstanding contributions to the nation’s economic, environmental, and social well-being through the development and commercialization of technological products, processes, and concepts, technological innovation; and strengthening the nation’s technological workforce.

The medal is also meant to inspire future generations to prepare for and pursue technical careers to keep America at the forefront of global technology and economic leadership.

On February 24 at 2 p.m. ET, NMTI staff will hold a free informational webinar on the award and the nomination process.

Nominations of candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups are encouraged. Contact Program Manager John Palafoutas at 571-272-9821 or email [email protected].
