What is the "Rising Star" Award?
NEWIEE created a new award in 2016, in honor of Allison Smith.
Allison Smith, who was well known to many in the energy community, lost her life in a car accident in February 2015. She approached her work on regional electric matters with confidence, respect and grace. She cared deeply about the climate implications of our energy choices, and this passion influenced her choices about her education, her personal pursuits and her work. She is remembered for her intelligence, inquisitive nature and incomparable ability to create good cheer. In honor of Allison, NEWIEE created the “Rising Star Award” in 2016, to be given to a woman who has less than ten years’ experience in her field, and who has demonstrated a commitment to and positive impact on her field, both professionally and in her personal endeavors.
