Outstanding Team Award
History - The Outstanding Team Award was established in 2005 to honor exceptional teamwork performed by University of Idaho staff members on one-time or unique non-routine projects. In spring 2005, the Department of Geological Sciences hosted the Goldschmidt Conference on the University of Idaho Campus. It is from this conference that the endowment was established to complement but not replace the Outstanding Employee Awards sponsored by Staff Council.
- The Outstanding Team Award is available to University of Idaho staff members who have participated on a team comprised of no less than three and no more than fifteen members. Recipients should be board-appointed staff, but exceptions may be made to include temporary help employees or students if they comprise a minority of the team.
- Only teams deserving recognition for exceptional, non-routine service will be honored with this award. In some years, it is possible that no team will be selected, or even nominated.
- Team members must have played a positive and critical role in the work of the team; demonstrated creativity, collegiality, commitment to excellence of the final outcome; and worked above and beyond normal job responsibilities.
Award & Presentation - With current circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we will determine the best way to honor the awardee and communicate across the University the plans as we get through the winter and into the spring.
