Content: The content of a proposal varies according to the specific award. Two categories of content have been established: mandatory content and optional content.

  • Mandatory Content - All nominations must contain an awards application with the completed contact information for the Nominator and Nominee and the mandatory content specified in each award category.
  • Optional Content - The nominator may include optional content highlighting the attributes of the individual/project to supplement the mandatory content. The optional content is the nominator's opportunity to "make the case" for the nomination proposal for the award.
