The Charles L. Mitchell Award is given in recognition of long-term service by individuals engaged in weather forecasting activities.
Nominations are considered by a committee of no fewer than five members of the Scientific and Technological Activities Commission's Committee on Weather Analysis and Forecasting which makes a recommendation for final approval by AMS Council.
Thank you for your interest in submitting a nomination! AMS membership is not required to submit an award nomination. Nominations are due by 1 May. The nominator is responsible for uploading the entire nomination package.
The nominees for awards remain on the committee's active list for four years. You will be allowed to update an unsuccessful nomination at the beginning of the next award cycle.
