The R10 Outstanding Volunteer Award aims to recognize those volunteers who have made outstanding contributions to a particular Region 10 Section.
IEEE Region 10 Awards for Humanitarian Technology Activity (HTA)
R10 Humanitarian Technology Activities aims to inspire scientists and engineers to become socially responsible and be engaged in developing technological solutions to improve living conditions and livelihood of people thus making a difference in peoples’ lives in a cost effective and sustainable manner. To achieve the goals of HTA mission, R10 has established an Outstanding Individual Award for humanitarian technology activities.
This award is to recognize the Sections who have done outstanding work in identifying social issues and made efforts to solve those issues through the use of technology or any other means. The objective of instituting this award is to motivate Sections to promote humanitarian technologies and in helping the OUs to plan and implement technologies
that might uplift the society.

IEEE Region 10 Young Professionals Awards
R10 places very high priority to assist young professionals in their early career by creating opportunities to network, refine and plan their career goals, and learn soft skills to boost their chance for success. R10 recognizes the vital role volunteers play in realization of these objectives and has launched the Young Professionals Volunteer awards to recognize the efforts and achievements of those individuals who have made substantial contribution to IEEE and Young Professionals Affinity Groups. The award will be conferred upon three young professionals; one from academia, one from industry and one entrepreneur.
R10 has launched the Young Professionals Affinity Group awards to motivate and recognize the efforts and achievements of Young Professionals AGs. The award will help Young Professionals AGs in its membership development by member’s satisfaction.
