USITT also offers five different Special Achievement Awards that are open for nominations through July 1.

Rubin Founder’s Award recognizes remarkable and continued service to the Institute.

The Thomas DeGaetani Award honors an important contributor to the arts in the vicinity of that year’s Annual Conference & Stage Expo. The 2016 event will be in Salt Lake City, Utah.
