Selection Process

The event committee reviews nominations for eligibility and refers all qualified candidates to the Selection Panel. A panel of independent judges complete the selection of awardees. Event Committee members nominate judges for the Selection Committee. Judges represent a diverse group of community members, and are selected based on their professional experience and commitment to volunteerism. All judges are provided a rubric to evaluate nominations and independently review and score nominations within a set period of time after the closing deadline. Selection committee members provide feedback, discuss, vote, and then officially select the award recipients. Event Committee members do not cast votes in the selection process. Nominators and their honorees will be notified by September 10th.
