ASME Medal

The ASME Medal, created in 1920, is the highest award of ASME (founded as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers) for "eminently distinguished engineering achievement".[1][2]

The yearly award consists of a gold medal, inscribed with the words "What is not yet, may be",[3] a certificate and $15,000 of cash.[2]

ASME also gives out a number of other awards yearly, including the Edwin F. Church Medal, the Holley medal, and the Soichiro Honda medal.[4]
