Outstanding ATE Evaluation Award

The Outstanding ATE Evaluation Awards will recognize and promote excellence in evaluation in the ATE program. Award-winning evaluations will be posted on EvaluATE’s website to serve as exemplars of ATE evaluation. EvaluATE will showcase award-winning evaluators and project teams in webchats, webinars, and blogs.
