In honor of long-time Drupal contributor Aaron Winborn (see his Community Spotlight), who lost his battle with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) (also referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease in the US and Motor Neuron Disease in the UK) in early 2015, the Community Working Group, with the support of the Drupal Association, has established the Aaron Winborn Award.

How is the winner selected?
