Call for Nominations
Normally occurring every two years
The ESHoF invites you to nominate an exceptional individual or individuals whose career accomplishments satisfy the mission of the ESHoF. Please submit the nomination by the last Friday of November for consideration by the selection committee for induction at the next bi-annual ceremony. The ceremony will be during the second week of November the following year. The induction ceremonies are at the Engineers Club of Dayton followed by inductee lectures for high school students the next day.
Before submitting a nomination, please review the list of previous enshrinees, which will indicate the caliber of nominations we are seeking. For example: George Washington Carver, Orville and Wilbur Wright, Thomas Edison, Enrico Fermi, Frank and Lillian Gilbreth, and Jonas Salk.
Living nominees are expected to accept enshrinement in person. For posthumous enshrinements, a close relative or a representative of the enshrinee's institution should accept on behalf of the deceased.
Nominations are normally for career achievements. However, a single achievement, if sufficiently significant, can qualify the nominee.
Nominations should be supported by information about the nominee's achievements. This information may include item like these:
- citations to scientific or engineering publications,
- patents, positions of leadership in science or engineering,
- awards from professional organizations or other appropriate agencies,
Nominations may include other evidence that the Nominee has made significant contributions benefiting humanity through an individual contribution using engineering or scientific principles.
