Tips on Writing Your Nomination:
- Be clear and specific. Don't assume the Awards Committee members will understand a project or achievement. Limit information to what is requested. Be specific about what the nominee(s) did and how it connects back to the details of the award specifications. And be sure to explain the technical details in such a way that non-experts will understand.
- Consider a collaborative, group-written nomination. If you find yourself shying away from a solo nomination, then round up a colleague or two and write one together. It makes gathering ideas and writing the nomination easier.
