Selection of the winner will be made by the Alumni Association, in consultation with a non-partisan committee made up of Board of Advisors volunteers, based on the following areas of focus:
NEW AND INNOVATIVE PROGRAMMING
Organizations that develop a new and innovative program can choose to submit for consideration.
