    External Awards

    Each year the Society is invited to submit a nomination from among its members for each of several awards administered by other organizations. The ASAS External Awards Committee receives and evaluates nominations, selects a nominee to be endorsed by the Society, and forwards the selected nomination to the President for endorsement and submission to the appropriate organization on behalf of the Society.

    Members can make nominations directly to the sponsors. However, the External Awards Committee will select only one nominee who will have the endorsement of ASAS. In order to simplify the selection process by the ASAS External Awards Committee, Society members are invited to make a very brief nomination statement and send it to any member of the Committee. The External Awards Committee selects the Society nominee and contacts the nominator to develop the full nomination, which then will be sent to the Chair of the External Awards Committee.

    Contact the Chair of the ASAS External Awards Committee for more information. Currently, the following awards are considered:

    The National Medal of Science

    The awardee is selected by the President of the United States for outstanding contributions to the development of science. Nominations should be submitted by August 15 of the current year.

    Saddle and Sirloin Club Portrait Award

    The awardee is selected by a committee convened by the Saddle and Sirloin Club. Recognition is for outstanding contributions to animal agriculture. The awardee is recognized and the portrait is hung in the Saddle and Sirloin Portrait Gallery during the North American Livestock Exposition in the Executive Inn West and the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center, Louisville, Kentucky. All nominees must have a sponsoring group to underwrite costs of the portrait and the recognition banquet; the American Society of Animal Science does not pay the costs incurred. Nominations may be submitted to the Chair of the ASAS External Awards Committee by September 15. The Chair in turn will submit the nomination of the Committee's recommended nominee to the Chair of the Kentucky State Fair Board. ASAS will provide a letter of support for ASAS members nominated for awards/honors (excluding ASAS Awards) documenting their role in ASAS and contributions to animal agriculture. Recognition is given to the awardee at the awards program if he/she is an ASAS member.

    The Alexander Von Humboldt Award

    Awardee is selected for an outstanding single piece of significant agricultural research covering the immediate three-year period preceding the year in which the award is given. The nomination must be submitted by January 15 of the current year. Award is $10,000.

    The Edward W. Browning Award

    The nominee is selected for contributions in improving food sources. Nominations should be submitted by December 15 of the current year. Award is $5,000.

    Council for Agricultural Science and Technology Charles A. Black Award

    The Charles A. Black Award is to be awarded annually to a Food or Agricultural Scientist, actively engaged in research, who has made significant scientific contributions to his or her scientific field, and who is selected on the basis of significant abilities to communicate the importance of his or her work and of agricultural science to laypersons, policymakers, and media.

The nominee with the lowest tally and at least three first place votes will be declared the winner on the first ballot.
    2. SECOND BALLOT (if necessary)
      If no nominee received three first-choice selections on the first ballot, the Chair will prepare a second ballot based on the tally of the first ballot by listing the top five candidates (or fewer if less than five in the pool). Again the committee will rank the top five nominees 1 for first, 2 for second, etc. The Chair will tally the ballots. On the second ballot, a nominee who receives three first place votes or five points less than the next lowest nominee will be declared the winner.
    3. THIRD BALLOT (if necessary)
      If no nominee is declared a winner on the second ballot, the two nominees with the highest point total (lowest rank) will be dropped. The Chair will prepare a third ballot listing the remaining three nominees, however on the third ballot points will be 1 for first, 3 for second, and 5 for third. The Chair will tally the points. The nominee receiving three first place votes or the nominee with five points less than the next lowest nominee will be declared the winner.
    4. FOURTH BALLOT (if necessary)
      If the third ballot fails to produce a winner, the Chair will drop the nominee with the highest point total (lowest rank) and conduct a final ranking (1 for first and 2 for second) with the nominee having the lowest number of points declared the winner.
    5. The Chair is empowered to break ties when necessary in preparing the second, third or fourth ballots.
    6. At no time during the course of balloting shall the Committee Chair divulge to the members of the Committee the point totals received by the nominees during the balloting process.

The Chair will assign 5 for first, 4 for second 3 for third, 2 for fourth and 1 for fifth. Additional nominees in a category will receive a 0 if the committee member believes that the nominee is worthy of further consideration and any nominee that the committee member believes is not worthy of further consideration will not receive any numerical score. The Chair will tally the ballots. The nominee with the highest tally, in each category, will be declared the winner on the first ballot unless a majority of the committee members believed that each of the nominees in a category did not merit consideration. In that event, no Fellow will be awarded in that category. In the event of a tie for first place, the nominee with the largest number of first place ballots will be declared the winner (move on to 2nd place etc, if that still leaves a tie).
    2. SECOND BALLOT
      A maximum of five additional Fellows may be awarded and balloting will be done without regard to category. The Chair will prepare a second ballot based on the tally of the first ballot by listing all of the remaining nominees, except those which a majority of the committee excluded as unworthy of further consideration, alphabetically. Committee members will rank the all of these nominees. The Chair will tally the ballots with 1 for first, 2 for second, etc. The five nominees with the lowest score will be named as Fellows. Ties will be broken by the number of first place votes (second place etc. if that still leaves a tie).
    3. At no time during the course of balloting shall the Committee Chair divulge to the members of the Committee the point totals received by the nominees during the balloting process.
    4. If the tie breaking procedures outlined in steps 2 and 3 do not bring a resolution, the Committee Chair can break ties.
