Award Background
Established in 1990, this award is named for environmental pioneer and researcher Dr. William D. Schaeffer (1922–2003), who is celebrated for his contributions to environmental issues facing the graphic communications industry. Nominations are judged by past Schaeffer Award winners and industry leaders. The recipient is presented with an engraved plaque at Printing Industries of America’s Spring Administrative Meetings, May 16-17, 2015 in Minneapolis, MN.

Please download the Nomination Form below.
See Nomination Proceedures for requirements.

The Schaeffer Award serves to recognize an individual’s focus on advancing environmental awareness and action in the graphic communications industry as a whole. A candidate’s accomplishments should go above and beyond job requirements or display an unselfish contribution to the industry not solely for a particular organization’s commercial gain.

The ongoing environmental advocacy of Dr. Schaeffer typifies the leadership activities expected of award recipients. Individuals must have sustained long-term efforts (on the order of several years or more) that have resulted in successful environmental programs and improvements.

Previous winners are not eligible for a second award. Candidates do not have to be Printing Industries of America members.
