Before You Begin

Please be prepared to submit all materials before beginning the quick form. You cannot save and return to the form. All letters must be uploaded at one time. 

1) Write a 350-800 word nomination narrative.
This narrative will introduce the nominee's accomplishments and contributions.
We recommend typing the narrative in a Word document and copy/pasting your text into the form.

2) Collect up to 5 one-page support letters. 
A well-rounded nomination includes a diverse set of support letters that highlight the nominee's strengths and are not repetitive of the narrative. Consider sharing the nomination narrative with supporters so that they can craft their one-page letters accordingly.

3) Complete the online nomination form.
The final step to completing your nomination is filling out this quick form.  You will upload your PDFs to the online form.
