July 30, 2013 – Do you know of a school nutrition leader or innovator who deserves to be nominated for a national Foodservice Achievement Management Excellence (FAME) Award? For 25 years, the FAME Awards have recognized those who raise the school nutrition bar for others to follow. These are individuals who have triumphed over challenges and provide insightful and innovative solutions to the complex issues that are the hallmark of this business. If this describes you, your supervisor or a colleague, take the time to submit your nomination today.

Winning a FAME award is a tremendous honor, but being nominated is, as well. The nominations for this and other school nutrition awards programs often are used as leads and resources by School Nutrition, the flagship publication of SNA, and other foodservice media to showcase the profession’s best practices and creative strategies. Participation in the FAME Awards program gives you the chance to shine the spotlight on your district and help spread the word about the important role that school nutrition professionals play in contributing to the health and welfare of America’s children.

Award categories include Golden School Foodservice Director of the Year, Silver Leadership, Silver Spirit, Silver Rising Star and Silver Friend of Child Nutrition.

Nominations will be taken online or via a downloadable form at until October 9, 2013. Eligible nominees include SNA members in good standing. Make sure FAME doesn’t pass you by! Send your nomination in before this year’s deadline.
