Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy Language, Regional Expertise and Culture (LREC) Office (OPNAV N13F) is seeking nominees for the Fiscal Year 2018 Language Professional of the Year (LPOY), Linguist of the Year (LOY) and Command Language Program of the Year (CLPOY).

LPOY and LOY are awards presented to active duty, reserve, and civilian members with foreign language capabilities who have distinguished themselves in support of the Navy's LREC mission. The CLPOY award recognizes the Navy's top command language program.

Nomination procedures are outlined in OPNAV Instruction 1650.31 for the command language program and in OPNAV Instruction 1650.32 for the language professional and linguist awards. All packages for language professional and linguist awards must include an essay written by the nominee.

The essay must describe an individual command strategy to train and sustain military language professionals to a Defense Language Proficiency Test level of 3/3 (listening and reading) or higher in their primary operational language within the first 10 years of their career.

The essay can be no more than five double-spaced, typewritten pages.  As this is an essay, not a research paper, references and footnotes are not required.

The deadline to submit nomination packages to OPNAV N13F is March 30, 2019. Email nomination packages to ALTN_N13F1@navy.mil. Contact Master Chief Petty Officer David Gutierrez at (703) 604-5519 or via email at ALTN_N13F1@navy.mil for any questions.
