Helpful Tips

  • Do:

    Remember, we expect all of our staff members to be fantastic employees. This award is for employees who have demonstrated a consistent willingness to go above and beyond.

    Be specific and list examples. Saying someone is a great staff member is not sufficient. Instead, describe in detail what makes that person a great role model and professional in our district. For example, maybe the person started an activity for students, hosted a community service program, boosted morale in your school or created a process that helps your department run more efficiently.

    Note, the judging panel has only the information you submit to refer to when scoring. Summit all supplemental documents with the nomination form.

    Feel free to nominate yourself or to submit a group nomination.


    Don’t ask the panel to contact you or other staff members for additional information about your nominee.

    Don’t miss the deadline. Nominations submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.

    Don’t assume the judging panel knows everything your nominee does. We need you to tell us!
