Guidelines for Nominations
The Award committee’s first focus is on the nominee’s current involvements. However, we also consider the nominee’s volunteer history. With this in mind, we encourage you to consult with the nominee prior to sending in your nomination letter to obtain relevant information about their current and past volunteer roles.
To submit a nomination, send the following to email@example.com by 5 p.m. on Monday February 13, 2023.
Nomination letter: Your nomination letter should not exceed 2 pages in length. It should elaborate the reasons why you believe the nominee is an outstanding volunteer. Please provide concrete examples illustrating the extent of the nominee’s involvement and their impact on the community.
Letter(s) of support: If you are not the person to whom the nominee reports in their role as a volunteer, contact one of their volunteer supervisors to ask them to provide a letter of support. Multiple letters of support may be submitted but are not required.
Note: It is not possible to receive both a Concordia Volunteer Award and a CCSL Outstanding Contribution Award in the same year.
