The IEEE Judith A. Resnik Award is a technical field award presented by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) to either an individual, or a team, "for outstanding contributions to space engineering within the fields of interest of the IEEE".[1]

The award is named in honor of Judith A. Resnik, a mission specialist, killed when the Space Shuttle Challenger disintegrated during launch in January 1986 and was established later that year. Recipients receive a bronze medal, certificate, and honorarium.[1]

The award was discontinued by the IEEE Board of Directors in 2012.
