An advisory council is accepting nominations for the 25th annual Governor's Medal for Science and Technology.

The medals are presented to Utahns and businesses who have provided distinguished service to the state.

This year, nominations to Gov. Gary Herbert's Utah State Advisory Council on Science and Technology will follow a simplified, two-step process. A one-page form is all that is needed to initiate a nomination. The form can be accessed via the Web at http://business.utah.gov/governors-medals.

Nominations should be addressed to Tami Goetz, State Science Advisor, GOED, 60 E. South Temple 3rd Floor, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84111. Those selected for further consideration from the first round of applications may be asked to submit a more complete application package that would include letters of recommendation.

Any Utah citizen or organization may submit nominations. Nominees must meet specific requirements detailed in the "Procedures and Criteria for Selection" document found at http://business.utah.gov/Procedure-Criteria.

Nominations must be received by 5 p.m. on Sept. 17. Nominations can be made in one of five categories — academic, science education, industrial-individual (independent inventors and entrepreneurs), industry-company (for profit and nonprofit companies) and government.
