Illinois Academy Awards


The Illinois Academy annually selects and honors the Recognized Young Dietitian of the Year, Recognized Dietetic Technician of the Year, Emerging Dietetic Leader, Outstanding Dietitian of the Year, and Outstanding Dietetics Student awards. We honors those individuals who have advanced the nutrition and dietetics profession and who have exhibited leadership by standing out among their peers. Winners are recognized in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and each awardee receives a congratulatory letter and certificate signed by the president of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Winners are recognized with a plaque during the Spring Assembly award ceremony from the Illinois Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
