American Innovators is an award granted to those who drive their industry forward with ingenuity — whether by concepting a new technology, navigating a business challenge or standing at the frontline of the communities, courses, and homes they serve. Because we believe that’s the kind of innovation that’s at the heart of our industries.
We invite you to nominate a peer who has demonstrated this higher level of ingenuity. Simply submit your nomination, and a board of industry-specific leaders will help select the next American Innovator. Because when we celebrate each other’s successes, we inspire new breakthroughs and greater progress for all.
Who will you nominate?
Use the form below to nominate a peer who goes beyond their title in either of the following categories:
PRODUCT & APPLICATION INNOVATION
This may include the development of a new technology, product, or product line; innovative application for greater efficacy, sustainability, or cost-savings; general achievements in portfolio expansion and greater customer selection.
MARKETING & BUSINESS MANAGEMENT INNOVATION
This may include those who have demonstrated great resilience in navigating market challenges (e.g., product availability, labor shortages); those who have achieved business growth and team expansion; general excellence in product and brand marketing.
Submissions will close at the end of June. Winners will then be selected across Golf and Pest industries. We’ll also commemorate their victory by sending them an engraved Flag of Valor.
MEET THE SELECTION COMMITTEE
Once all nominations are in, the following committee will review and validate all submissions. From there, they’ll select the official 2022 American Innovators per industry.
