St Petersburg College - Clearwater Campus

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. Have fun nominating your fellow interpreters!


Nominations open July 21, 2018...so start thinking about who is deserving of a FRIDtastic Award!
