Founded in 1958, NACUFS is the brainchild of Richard Lichtenfelt, then director of dormitory food services at Central Michigan University. Launched by a group of 20 college and university foodservice professionals, NACUFS supports its members with programs and resources to excel, and these include benchmarking, best practices, educational programming, and networking. As part of this mission, the Loyal E. Horton Dining Awards provide an avenue for sharing ideas and creative presentations in campus dining services.

For the 2017 awards, more than 75 colleges and universities across North America submitted entries in six categories: Residential Dining Concepts; Residential Dining—Special Event; Retail Sales—Single Concept; Retail Sales—Multiple Concepts/Marketplace; Catering—Special Event; and Catering—Online Menu. A team of six judges examined each entry and selected top candidates in each category.

Below are the Gold winners of each category, and by school size. The winning contest entries will be displayed at the NACUFS 2017 National Conference in July. Award winners are publicly recognized at a luncheon culminating with the announcement of the grand prize winners.
