The “Father of Stevia” Awards in Memorium of James A. May will be discerned during the 8th WSO Stevia Convention which will be held in Berlin in June 4-5, 2018.

Possessed by a vision of wanting to change the world, James A. May brought Stevia to the United States and championed its cause for more than 35 years. In doing so, he was often called the “Father of Stevia,” everywhere he went around the world.

In memoriam of his groundbreaking efforts to bring stevia to the world, and in partnership with the World Stevia Organization, we establish the James A. May “Father of Stevia” Awards to recognize “Outstanding Contributions in the Progress of Stevia Research and Technology,” to be presented annually beginning in 2018 during the annual World Stevia Organizations meetings.

These awards will be administered by Wisdom Natural Brands®, the company James A. May founded in 1982, in partnership with the World Stevia Organization. Wisdom Natural Brands® currently manufactures the top natural stevia sweetener brand in the United States, known as SweetLeaf®. SweetLeaf® Stevia is an industry leader in innovative stevia-based products and world-class taste.

The James A. May “Father of Stevia” Awards annually recognizes two people for outstanding individual and/or institutional contributions in any field of stevia research or technological innovation, broadly defined. The object of these awards is to increase awareness of current stevia research, to encourage further research, and to inspire innovative technologies that seek to continue bringing stevia – with all its many natural benefits – to the world, as James A. May, the “Father of Stevia,” first envisioned 35 years ago.

The award recipients will be selected by Wisdom Natural Brands® in close partnership with the World Stevia Organization.
First Prize: $1,000 Euros monetary award with accompanying Certificate of Award and Recognition
Second Prize: $500 Euros monetary award with accompanying Certificate of Award and Recognition
