Each award requires a completed nomination form and two or more endorsement questionnaires. Each award has specific criteria. Traditionally, the endorsements have been letter, but we have created a new questionnaire to help in the endorsement process. These questionnaires will ensure that the recognition committee has a comprehensive understanding of the volunteers' achievements.
Nominations should be sent in along with a photograph (if possible) which will be shown at the recognitions ceremony.
