Officials seek Sijan award nominations

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO - RANDOLPH, Texas -- The Air Force is accepting nominations for the 2012 Lance P. Sijan U.S. Air Force Leadership Award, Air Force Personnel Center officials said.

The Sijan award recognizes the accomplishments of officers and enlisted members who have demonstrated the highest quality of leadership in the performance of their duties and their personal lives.

Nominees will be rated on their scope of responsibility, professional leadership, leadership image and community involvement between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012.

The four award categories are senior officer, junior officer, senior enlisted and junior enlisted. Individuals will compete in the category that corresponds to the grade held for the majority of the award period.

Organizations and base-level personnel must contact their major command, field operating agency, or direct reporting unit for applicable suspense dates and additional information regarding nomination procedures.

Each major command, forward operating agency or direct reporting unit may submit one nomination in each of the four award categories. Completed nomination packages must be sent to the Air Force Personnel Center by Sept. 1, 2012.
