How to Nominate for the Service Award of Excellence for Support Staff

Who is eligible to be nominated for the Service Award?

Any full or part-time support staff member is eligible to be nominated for this award as long as they have completed the equivalent of 2 years of full time service.

Nomination Form
This form plays a critical role in informing the selection committee about the impact of your nominee. Please take time to fill it out thoughtfully, review each of the award criteria and then in point form list the contributions that your nominee has made in each area. A few well thought out points that demonstrate contributions that focus on tangible results directly related to the criteria will be viewed more favourably then a large number of points that don't as clearly relate to the criteria or demonstrate an impact.

Letters of Support
Two one-page letters of support from other colleagues are to accompany the nomination. There is space allocated at the end of the nomination form to attached each letter of support. Those providing letters of support do not have to use only the form provided - they may send emails or memo's that voice their support to the nominator to include in the nomination form.

It's helpful to share the criteria for the award with those providing the letters so that their examples are informed by the criteria. These letters offer an opportunity to show the selection committee the contribution of the nominee from other perspectives. The impact of the letter is not rooted in the status of the individual providing the letter, but more on their ability to speak to the difference that the nominee has made.
