The first category would be for an individual from within the ranks of mosquito control professionals who, in the opinion of the Associated Executives, contributed a “meritorious service’’ to mosquito control work. Eligible, would be employees of county mosquito control agencies and commissions, the staff of the Center for Vector Biology at Rutgers University, the staff of the NJDEP Office of Mosquito Control Coordination and state or county mosquito commissioners.
Examples of ” meritorious service” could range from an outstanding research project, administrative excellence, a valuable contribution to the Associated Executives, to the development of innovative practical systems by any class of field worker.
The second category for an award would be to an individual or an organization who, in the opinion of the Associated Executives, contributed an “outstanding service” to mosquito control work in New Jersey. This award would be limited to persons outside of the professional ranks of the mosquito control fraternity. Examples are broad in scope, but could be someone in state or local government, a civic and/or service group, the news media, etc.
