Ken Jacobs Award (previously the Oracle Contribution Award)
An Oracle employee is recognized each year at COLLABORATE for his or her outstanding dedication and service to the user group community. In order to be nominated, an individual must be a current Oracle employee. The award recognizes a person who has affected the success of the IOUG through his or her support of the organization.
Originally called the Oracle Contribution Award, it was renamed in honor of Ken Jacobs upon his departure from Oracle after long-term service as liaison to the Board of Directors. Mr. Jacobs had won the award himself in 2004.
