Step one: Contact the candidate to receive permission to nominate them for an award. Ask if anyone else is nominating them for an Indigenous Award of Excellence. Each candidate may only be nominated once per year. Past recipients are not eligible to win again.
Step two: Download and complete the PDF for the award for which you are submitting a nomination. If you experience any problems, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide specific examples that describe how the nominee’s contributions relate to the criteria. Please provide details that demonstrate the impact the candidate has made. You may use point form. The selection committee will only consider information that is included in the nomination package, so please complete your nomination in full and in alignment with the awards criteria.
Step three: You may attach up to two one-page letters of support from other support staff, faculty, students, or community supporters to accompany the nomination. It is 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 contributions of the nominee from different perspectives. The impact of the letter is not weighed by the status of the individual providing the letter, but more on their ability to speak about the contributions the nominee has made.
Step four: Email your completed PDF and support letters to email@example.com.
