Each year, the Space Foundation presents the Hill award, in honor of its late chairman Gen. James E. Hill, USAF, Ret., to an outstanding individual who has distinguished themselves through a lifetime of contributions to the welfare or betterment of humankind through the exploration, development and use of space, or through use of space technology, information, themes or resources in academic, cultural, industrial or other pursuits of broad benefit to humanity.
