Before You Begin

  • In the event an organization or advisor receives multiple nominations for the same award category:
    • Only the first three nominations for an organization or advisor will be considered for each award category.
    • Upload letters of support to a single nomination in the event multiple individuals want to nominate the same organization or advisor.

    Awards will be presented to the winning organizations and advisors at a significant event for each organization.

    Nomination Guidelines

    • Nominations must be completed in their entirety. Incomplete nominations will not be considered.
    • Each nomination will require a response to a 500 word (max) essay question.  It is recommended that you prepare your essay response(s) before filling out this nomination form.
    • Remember…the review committee stresses QUALITY over QUANTITY. It is better to submit one high-quality nomination for an organization or advisor than to submit many short or “quick” nominations.
    • Only three (3) nominations per organization, per award. The first three nominations received will be reviewed for each organization.
    • Multiple letters of support can be attached to a nomination.
    • You may submit collaborative letters of support or collaborate on nominations. However, collaborative submissions will still count as a single nomination.
