Nominations Sought for 2004 Governor's Medal

Gov. Olene Walker has announced that the Utah State Advisory Council on Science and Technology is accepting nominations for the 2004 annual Governor's Medal for Science and Technology Award. The Governor's Medal is awarded as a symbol of recognition to those individuals who have provided distinguished service to the State of Utah in science and technology.

Nominations can be made in any one of four categories: academic, science education, industry (including independent inventors and entrepreneurs), and government. Any Utah citizen or organization may submit nominations. The team category nominations awarded in past years will no longer be accepted. Nominees must meet a residency of Utah requirement detailed in "Procedures and Criteria for Selection."

The awards recognize individuals who have made a significant impact and contribution to science and technology in the State of Utah. Candidate nominations representing Utah's biotechnology, computer technology and medical technology markets are strongly encouraged, but nominees are
welcomed from any fields of endeavor.

The State Advisory Council on Science and Technology is responsible for administering the award and for recommending nominees to Gov. Walker. A one-page form is all that is needed to initiate a nomination.

Nominees selected from the first round of applications may be asked to submit a more complete application package. The nominations must be sent 5:00 p.m. May 7, 2004 to:
