2016 WASPY Awards

Nominations are NOW being accepted for the 2016 WASPY Awards! 

We all know there are many volunteers that each day, week, month & year contribute countless hours of their own time to OWASP to help make the world a safer place, yet they barely receive the recognition they deserve.  Now is the time to show them how much they are appreciated!

There are 4 categories for you to nominate 4 "unsung heroes" that you feel best fits each category for their contributions to the OWASP Foundation. 

Keep in mind, the purpose of these awards is to bring recognition to those who "fly under the radar" while doing great things for OWASP.
