Include the same information for the person or group whom you are nominating. Nominators must sign the cover letter. Self-nominations will not be considered.
- Enclose a two-page (8 1/2 X 11), double-spaced, typewritten (10 to 12 pitch standard font: 1" margins) summary of your nominee's accomplishment. Cite specific action and results with a time frame given. Do not identify the nominee or the nominator in this summary. Information as to location, political affiliation, race, religion, etc., must be omitted in order that these may be judged without concern of prejudice. Refer to "nominee", "city", or "state". Do not use letterhead for this summary. The initial stage of judging is based on this summary alone.
