IJSBA is pleased to announce the opening of the nomination period for inductees into the 2016 Jacobsen-Stjernstrom Hall Of Fame.

This installment of the Hall Of Fame Ceremony will take place on the 35th anniversary of the IJSBA World Finals.   The Hall of Fame recognizes IJSBA competitors who have been significant factors in shaping the landscape of PWC Racing from day one to the present.  Also inducted are non-competitors who have made such significant impacts that they are recognized in the Hall of Fame as Lifetime Achievers.The Hall of Fame Celebration, held in even numbered years, includes a display of historic memorabilia dating to the early 1970′s along with a formal induction including a commemorative award for each inductee.

Up to four total candidates will be inducted for 2016.

If you have a nomination for a Hall of Fame inductee or Lifetime Achievement recipient then please send your nomination to us. Nominations should include a thorough and well written statement detailing the reasons why this nominee is worthy of a Hall of Fame induction. Priority consideration will be given to those who can attend the event to accept their award. Heavy weight will also be given to previous nominees who have been well supported by the public recommendations.  Given the special nature of the 35th Anniversary, a preference will be given to persons who have aided in bringing the sport to a 35 year tenure.

IJSBA is also selecting applications from persons interested in managing the Hall of Fame process.  Interested persons should please send a well written email describing your visions for the Hall of Fame as well as your experiences in the sport.  Applicants must be willing to accept a nominal work load of writing and research.  Additionally, the applicant must be willing to meet deadlines and engage in discourse with fellow committee members in a productive manner.

Nominations will close on June 15, 2016.  2016 submissions will be considered along with previous year submissions that were not selected.

The inductees will be announced after they have been contacted.

The 2016 IJSBA Hall of Fame celebration will take place on Saturday, October 8, 2016 within 30 minutes after the night time Freestyle competition under the London Bridge (estimated start at 8:30 PM) at the London Bridge Resort Conference Center in Lake Havasu City, AZ, USA.
