The FRIDtastic Awards
These superlative awards recognize and celebrate our FRID members. Think of Senior Superlatives like you would see in a high school yearbook! Nominees and winners will be chosen by you, the membership of FRID. For each category listed below, there will be one winner from each of the four regions (North, South, East, West). Keep in mind, these are intentionally designed to be lighthearted and fun and are not meant to be judgements or perceptions of the skills of interpreters. Also, don’t worry if the person you want to nominate isn’t a FRID member yet, they will be notified and given plenty of time to join.
Voting is now open! Have fun voting for your fellow interpreters! Remember, in order to vote in the FRIDtastic Awards, your FRID membership needs to be up-to-date. Check your membership status today!
FRIDtastic Awards 2018 Ballot (member login required)
FRIDtastic Awards 2018 Runoff Ballot (member login required)
*Note: Due to some errors on the original ballot, we have a few runoff elections. For Marvelous Mentor, a candidate was placed in the wrong region, so we are doing a runoff in the 2 regions affected by the error, East and North. For Friendliest - East Region, a candidate was left off the ballot completely, so we will be doing a runoff for East Region only. If you previously cast a vote on the original ballot, you are allowed to vote again on the runoff ballot. Voting for all other regions in the affected categories are still on the original ballot.
