The C. W. Woodworth Award is an annual award presented by the Pacific Branch of the Entomological Society of America. This award, the PBESA's largest, is for achievement in entomology in the Pacific region of the United States over the previous ten years. The award is named in honor of Charles W. Woodworth and was established on June 25, 1968.[1] It is principally sponsored by Woodworth's great-grandson, Brian Holden, and his wife, Joann Wilfert, with additional support by Dr. Craig W. and Kathryn Holden, and Dr. Jim and Betty Woodworth.
