The American Society of Irrigation Consultants (ASIC) invites all irrigation and water delivery practitioners – purveyors, engineers, architects, designers, contractors and managers – to submit entries for its 2009 National Excellence in Irrigation Awards Program.

Submission deadline is March 16, 2009. The awards, to be presented at ASIC’s Annual Conference in St. Augustine, Fla., May 2-4, 2009, are given based on the quality of project planning and design in functionality, environmental responsibility and relevance.

Judged by nationally recognized professionals and academicians, ASIC’s Excellence in Irrigation Awards recognizes creative, innovative and efficient irrigation design and project supervision based on the merit of the project and the practitioner. There are no first-, second- or third-place winners. Each entry is eligible for an Honor Award, the highest award in each category, or a Merit Award for superior professional accomplishment.

Excellence-in-Irrigation award winners receive national and local recognition, a professional plaque and industry support from ASIC and its membership. Honor Award winners in each category receive a gratis registration to the following year’s conference.
