Call for Nominations

NOW OPEN through March 31, 2022


The ESHoF invites you to nominate an exceptional individual or individuals whose career accomplishments satisfy the mission of the ESHoF.   The next ESHoF Induction will be on November 9 and 10, 2022.  Our deadline for nominations for this next induction is March 31, 2022.

Our selection committee will review active nominations in April 2022 for the next induction.  The induction ceremonies are at the Engineers Club of Dayton followed by Inductee Lectures for Students (and the public) the next day.

To submit a nomination, download and complete the nomination form.  Submit your nomination by e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.

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, Jonas Salk, Commodore Grace M. Hopper, Martin Cooper, Henry J Heimlich M.D., and Mary Leakey.

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 items 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.
