Crafting an effective nomination requires attention to detail and a clear representation of the nominee’s excellence. Consider the following best practices to ensure your nominee stands out:
– Professional Success (1000 characters or less): Provide facts and figures that highlight their major accomplishments, awards, and organizational impact.
– Community Leadership (1000 characters or less): Detail how their actions improve the community’s quality of life, including their involvement in organizations.
– Anonymity: Avoid mentioning the nominee’s name in the submission body, as judges don’t see nominees’ names.
– Thoroughness: Research and gather information about the nominee’s community involvement, even if you’re not aware of all their contributions.
– Use Data: Include data-driven achievements such as business growth, fundraising amounts, sales increases, or volunteer hours.
– Be Concise: Present achievements in bullet points and be specific in your descriptions.
– Include Awards: Mention both professional and non-professional awards received within the last decade.
– Provide Facts: Judges rely solely on the information provided in the nomination for evaluation.
