Frequently Asked Questions
  • Which category should I choose? It’s not uncommon that a nominee might fit in multiple categories. Please choose the one that best fits the nature of your nomination and their efforts. All entries will be reviewed prior to judging, and category adjustments may be made if needed.
  • Can I nominate the organization where I’m employed? Yes, self-nominations by organizations are welcome.
  • Will multiple nominations increase the chance of being selected? No, one thorough nomination is best. Additional weight is not given based on the number of nominations.
  • I submitted a nomination in a past year that was not selected – should I submit again? Absolutely! With so many great entries each year, it’s always a difficult choice for our judges. We welcome resubmissions!
  • Can I nominate an organization/individual who has been recognized before? Judges will consider all submissions, but they will take into account the length of time since last recognition and whether substantial changes have occurred. Entries recognized in the past five years are unlikely to be selected again.
