In 2016, Software Carpentry gave Christina Koch, Adrianna Pinska and Jon Pipitone the Community Service Award for their valuable contributions to the project. In 2017, Anelda van der Walt received the award. This year, with the merger of Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry to create the umbrella project known as The Carpentries, the Executive Council decided to continue with the recognition of extra hard work by some volunteers and will choose and announce 2018 award winners in December.
Who can be nominated?
Any individual who has contributed to The Carpentries and member projects in any form who is neither a member of the Executive Council nor a member of staff.
How do I nominate someone?
Fill in “The Carpentries Community Service Award 2018 Nomination” (Google) Form before 23:59 19 November, 2018 (Anywhere on Earth Time).
All nominations will be confidential and the nomination text will be available only to Executive Council members.
When and where the award will be announced?
