The basic criteria of an award-winning program are:
Sustained excellence over the preceding four to six years, as documented by specific outcomes and achievements, and evidenced by continual improvements in the basic components of a comprehensive program;
Demonstrated improvements in planning, managing and evaluating a comprehensive program;
Innovative and effective use of program methods and problem solving to identify and reduce risk factors that are known to cause foodborne illness; and
Providing targeted outreach; forming partnerships; and participating in forums that foster communication and information exchange among the regulators, industry and consumer representatives.
Applications are reviewed by the jury to determine whether a program meets – or exceeds – these basic criteria, then determines which is worthy of that year’s Crumbine Award.
