Just over a month from today (Wednesday, Oct.3) the 2000 SIGAda Awards will
be presented in a special morning plenary session at the SIGAda 2000
conference in Bloomington, MD.  (See
if you have somehow missed announcements of this year's annual SIGAda
international conference.)

The period for nominations for 2001 SIGAda awards is extended one week from
date prev.announced  --  to Sep. 7.  We welcome your nominations of deserving
recipients.  The nomination form is at the end of this message and on the
SIGAda website at  (You
need to visit this website to see past award winners' names, and also a
picture of the statuette which is the award among other things, so you
don't nominate someone who has already won an award in a category.)

The ACM SIGAda Awards recognize individuals and organizations who have made
outstanding contributions to the Ada community and to SIGAda.  The two
categories of awards are:

(1) Outstanding Ada Community Contribution Award
        -- For broad, lasting contributions to Ada technology & usage.

(2) ACM SIGAda Distinguished Service Award
        -- For exceptional contributions to SIGAda activities & products.

Your participation in the nominations process will help maintain the
prestige and honor of these awards.

Please consider who should be nominated this year.  You may nominate a
person for either or both awards, and as many people as you think worthy.
One or more awards will be made in both categories.

Please visit
and peruse the names of past winners.  This may help you think about the
measure of accomplishment that is appropriate.  You may be aware of people
who have made substantial contributions that have not yet been
acknowledged.  Nominate them.  Consider what you believe to be the best
developments in the Ada community or SIGAda in the last year; the last 5
years; since Ada's inception.  Who was responsible?  Nominate them.

Please note that anyone who has received either of the two awards remains
eligible for the other.  Perhaps there is an outstanding SIGAda volunteer
who has won our Distinguished Service Award and who has also made impactful
contributions to the advance of Ada technology, or visa versa.  Nominate
him or her!  There have been no dual winners in the 6-year history of the
SIGAda Awards Program, and perhaps it's time to change that.

The ACM SIGAda Awards Committee, comprised of volunteers who have
previously won an award, will determine this year's recipients from your

Call our attention to the people who are most deserving, by nominating
them.  And please nominate by OCTOBER 15!

Thank you,
