Cambium Networks would like to recognize individuals who have made a difference in the lives of people, and improved communities, through their efforts to extend wireless connectivity and connect the unconnected.  Access to the internet can have a profound impact on entire communities and the people who live in those communities.  Cambium Networks will give four quarterly awards and one annual award to honor those individuals who have made extraordinary efforts to extend wireless connectivity and improved lives in the process.

Throughout each calendar year, Cambium Networks will select from all nominations made one person Quarterly to honor with the Hero Award, and, from all Quarterly Hero Award honorees, will select one honoree for the annual Hero Award.  Awards Rules (“Official Rules”)

  1. THE HERO AWARDS:  The Cambium Networks Wireless Connectivity Hero Awards (“Hero Awards”) are sponsored by Cambium Networks.  Cambium began accepting nominations on August 22, 2017 for Quarterly Hero Award winners to be announced each business quarter.  The Annual Award will be selected from Nominees honored with a Quarterly Hero Award from each calendar year.  The following sets out the nomination and selection process:
  • Nomination: To nominate an individual for consideration (the “Nominations”), the nominator (“Nominator”) must go to and provide (i) their name, address, and email address, (ii) the name, address, and email address of the individual they are nominating (the “Nominee”), and (iii) information explaining why the Nominee should be honored.  Sufficient information should be provided to show how the Nominee has made a profound positive difference by extending wireless connectivity to make people’s lives better within the prior three (3) years.  Submissions may include a written statement, video, photographs, or a combination of these formats, and should address the Judging Criteria (defined below).  Links to applicable websites or other information bearing upon the Nomination may be included.  Nominators may not nominate themselves and each Nomination must be of a natural person, and not a company or enterprise.  Cambium may disqualify Nominations in the event they do not comply with the Submission Requirements, are unsportsmanlike or off- topic, or that do not nominate an individual who has made extraordinary efforts to extend wireless connectivity and improve lives of others, all at Cambium’s sole discretion.  Nominators are encouraged to get permission from Nominees before submitting a Nomination.  Cambium is not responsible for lost, late, illegible, misdirected, mutilated, or incomplete Nominations.
  • Acceptance of Nomination.  Cambium will contact any Nominee selected for a Quarterly Hero Award prior to finalizing the selection, via mail or email or telephone at the mailing and/or email or telephone address provided by the Nominator, to confirm that the Nominee accepts the Nomination and agrees to these rules covering the Hero Awards (“Official Rules”).  If a Nominee does not accept the Nomination the Nominee will not be eligible for selection for a Quarterly or Annual Hero Award and will not be contacted further.
  • Eligible in Year Nominated and Succeeding Year.  Cambium expects to continue the Hero Awards after 2017; nominations of persons made in 2017 will be eligible for consideration for a Quarterly and Annual award during 2018, and any Nominations made during 2018 and subsequent years will be eligible for consideration for a Quarterly or Annual Award in the year nominated as well as the immediately following year, at Cambium’s discretion.

  1. JUDGING AND HONOREE SELECTION:  The Hero Award will be conducted through the following phases which are described below.
  • “Quarterly Award”.  Following the conclusion of each business quarter, Cambium will select one (1) honoree per each of the four business regions to honor for that quarter (“Quarterly Honoree”) from among all accepted Nominations received prior to such quarter (and Nominations made in the immediately prior year may be considered for Quarterly or Annual Awards in the next year), based on the following criteria: a Nominee (i) personally took initiative to connect the unconnected with wireless, (ii) made an effort to provide wireless connectivity in a way that improved the lives of those who use the network, (iii) introduced a new wireless technology or solution never available before , (iv) whose efforts to provide wireless connectivity had a lasting value on individuals and/or their community, or (v) whose efforts to provide wireless connectivity serve as an inspiration to others (the “Criteria”).  Cambium will consider which Nominee best embodies these Criteria in its selection, and may in its sole discretion choose a Nominee who embodies some or all of these Criteria, in its sole discretion.  If, in Cambium’s sole discretion, no Nominees adequately embody the Criteria, Cambium may elect not to select a Quarterly Honoree for that particular quarter.  Following selection as a Quarterly Honoree, Cambium will contact the Quarterly Honoree to consent to the selection and approve the write-up that will be posted on Cambium’s website and social media channels.
  • “Annual Award”.  After the close of each calendar year, a panel of judges will select an Annual Honoree (“Annual Honoree”) from among all Quarterly Honorees selected during that year, based on the one Quarterly Nominee who best embodies the Criteria.  If, in Cambium’s sole discretion, no Quarterly Honoree stands out among all Quarterly Honorees for that year, Cambium may elect not to select an Annual Honoree that year.  Following selection as an Annual Honoree, Cambium will contact the Annual Honoree to approve the new write-up that will be posted on Cambium’s website and social media channels.
