Wichita Awards Committee – Seeking Members for Society Mission Awards Submission

These awards recognize SWE groups that embody SWE core values and demonstrate continuous improvement and growth as they work to achieve the Society’s strategic goals. These awards have replaced the previous SWE awards given out in the past (such as the communications, outreach, and membership awards Wichita SWE has been previously awarded). More information about the SWE Mission Awards can be found here: https://swe.org/awards/swe-mission-awards/
