After closing public nominations on September 21st, WIBU received a total of eleven (11) candidates for the internationally recognized awards.

Nominations were solicited from the public. In order to remain impartial, the 11 nominations were forwarded to the judging panel for review. Each judge reviews and evaluates each nomination on its own merits and scores according to a provided ATHENA Recipient Selection Form. The judges’ scores are tabulated and the nominee with the highest score is named as the recipient of the award.
