JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Nominations for the 2013 Lance P. Sijan U.S. Air Force Leadership Award will be accepted through Sept. 20, Air Force Personnel Center officials said.

The Sijan award recognizes the accomplishments of officers and enlisted members who have demonstrated the highest quality of leadership in the performance of their duties and their personal lives.

Nominees will be rated on their scope of responsibility, professional leadership, leadership image and community involvement between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.

The award categories are senior officer, junior officer, senior enlisted and junior enlisted. Individuals will compete in the category that corresponds to the grade held for the majority of the award period.

Each major command, forward operating agency or direct reporting unit may submit one nomination in each of the four award categories. Completed nomination packages are due to the Air Force Personnel Center by Sept. 20.
