includes vital information about OWASP's infrastructure initiatives,
project activity, and Chapters. Read it for an overview of what is
happening in OWASP.
WASPY Nominations are now OPEN

It is time to help celebrate the unsung heroes of the OWASP community by
nominating the members and volunteers who grow OWASP and drive innovation
in the safety and security of the world’s software for a WASPY

This year we are focusing on three categories: Community, Outreach, and
Technical Innovation.

*Best Community Supporter* - The WASPY for COMMUNITY honors members who
create dynamic INTERACTION and LEARNING opportunities for the OWASP
Community. Nominees to the Community WASPY Award create collaborative and
inclusive environments and grow the OWASP Community. WASPYs focus on the
unsung heros of the OWASP community. Chapter Leaders and Community Members
should especially consider leaders and volunteers who bring something extra
to the environment, help the chapter reach out to new attendees, or carry
out the tedious and repetitive tasks that make growing an OWASP Chapter

*Best Mission Outreach* - The WASPY for Mission Outreach honors community
members who help the community GROW. Growth can happen inside the larger
OWASP community or outside it in the broader AppSec and development
communities. Leaders and Members should especially consider volunteers who
pushed the boundaries of the audience and reach of OWASP to provide new
exposure for OWASP’s projects and chapters. New leaders and volunteers who
help bring more people to your chapter, project, or actively represent
OWASP at non-OWASP events, gatherings, and activities to build an active
OWASP community are ideal candidates for the Mission Outreach WASPY award.

*Best Innovator* - The WASPY for Innovation is given to a community member
who has contributed to the TECHNICAL advancement of OWASP in the past year.
This advancement is usually through an OWASP Project and can be in the form
of code, an application, or anything that materially makes the AppSec
community better in a unique way. WASPYs focus on the unsung heros of the
OWASP community who quietly go about making the world a bit better for
their work. Project Leaders and Community Members should especially
consider nominating new projects, projects that have recently graduated,
and project contributors for this WASPY.

By focusing on these three categories we hope to honor those who are the
heart of OWASP.
