Gold and Silver Medal Awards

The Gold and Silver Medals are the highest two honor awards that can be granted by the Secretary of Commerce. Winners are recognized annually at a formal ceremony in Washington, D.C. The medals are awarded to individuals, groups (or teams), and organizations. Individuals and members of groups each receive a framed certificate signed by the Secretary. Organizations receive one certificate to represent the entire organization.

Each nomination must be vetted and approved at the Line or Staff Office level before submission to WFMO. Ask your Office Awards Program Manager about their deadlines.

Note: In December 2005, DOC re-emphasized its commitment to limiting group nominations to 10 members and joint organizational nominations to no more than 3 organizations. Beginning in 2006, DOC will grant no exceptions to these limits of 10 and 3, respectively.
