This annual award recognizes an individual who demonstrates personal integrity, kindness, and above-and-beyond commitment to the Drupal community. It includes a scholarship and stipend for the winner to attend DrupalCon and recognition in a plenary session at the event.
Nominations are open to not only well-known Drupal contributors, but also people who have made a big impact in their local or regional community. If you know of someone who has made a big difference to any number of people in our community, we want to hear about it.
This award was created in honor of long-time Drupal contributor Aaron Winborn, whose battle with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS (also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) came to an end on March 24, 2015. Based on a suggestion by Hans Riemenschneider, the Community Working Group, with the support of the Drupal Association, launched the Aaron Winborn Award.
Nominations are open until Friday, March 19, 2021. A committee consisting of the Community Working Group members as well as past award winners will select a winner from the nominations. Current members of the CWG and previous winners are exempt from winning the award.
Previous winners of the award are:
- 2015: Cathy Theys
- 2016: Gábor Hojtsy
- 2017: Nikki Stevens
- 2018: Kevin Thull
- 2019: Leslie Glynn
- 2020: Baddý Breidert
