Nominations Open for the 2018 Distinguished Manufacturing Service Recognition Program FLATE Awards

The Florida Advanced Technological Education center-FLATE together with the Florida
Association for Industrial and Technical Education, FAITE*, are working together for the 2018 recognition program. FLATE Distinguished Manufacturing Service Recognition Program, now hosted by FAITE, brings recognition to both secondary and post-secondary educators as well as recognizes key personnel for outstanding contributions to promote technology education and career awareness in support of manufacturing. This award includes nominees working in any manufacturing area such as economic development, industry, education and administration.

Award winners are selected from submitted nominations from around the state. FLATE awards are judged by an awards committee made up of industry representative of our FLATE Industry Advisory Committee and FAITE.
