Friends of Southern IPM
The Friends of Southern IPM 2020 Nomination Window is now closed.
Next call for nominations expected in Fall 2020.
Each year, the Southern IPM Center recognizes those with extraordinary potential to contribute to the development and implementation of research, extension, or implementation of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in the Southern Region of the United States.
The award program generally gets submissions from college deans, department heads, and other administrative personnel who are not usually involved directly in IPM programs but may interact or supervise students or faculty who are involved in IPM research or extension. Student and professional award recipients are invited to participate in future award panels to assist with selection of new winners.
The award categories are as follows:
