Community Working Group posts: Nominations are now open for the 2022 Aaron Winborn Award

The Drupal Community Working Group is pleased to announce that nominations for the 2022 Aaron Winborn Award are now open. 

This annual award recognizes an individual who demonstrates personal integrity, kindness, and above-and-beyond commitment to the Drupal community. It includes a scholarship and travel stipend for the winner to attend DrupalCon North America and recognition in a plenary session at the event.

Nominations are open to all Drupal community members*, including but not limited to people who have made a big impact in their local or regional community. If you know of someone who has made a big difference to any number of people in our community, we want to hear about it. 

This award was created in honor of long-time Drupal contributor Aaron Winborn, whose battle with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or  ALS (also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease)  came to an end on March 24, 2015. Based on a suggestion by Hans Riemenschneider, the Community Working Group, with the support of the Drupal Association, launched the Aaron Winborn Award.

Nominations are open until Friday, March 25, 2022. A committee consisting of the Community Working Group members (Conflict Resolution Team) as well as past award winners will select a winner from the nominations. 
* Current members of the CWG Conflict Resolution Team and previous winners are not eligible for winning the award.

Previous winners of the award are:

2015: Cathy Theys 
2016: Gábor Hojtsy 
2017: Nikki Stevens  
2018: Kevin Thull 
2019: Leslie Glynn  
2020: Baddý Breidert
2021: AmyJune Hineline 

Now is your chance to show, support and recognise an amazing community member!

If you know someone amazing who should benefit from this award please submit a nomination.
