In that engagement we want to be able to celebrate the nominees efforts with the wider community, so please document what-ever you know that makes this person so special and the reasons you think they require being recognised.
The judges don’t want to read a novel so if you can provide DOT Points to cover each facet of activity you know and please don’t be shy or humble; we would like to recognise your nominee for all they have done over many years. Please also detail their historical and current involvement. Historical activity and service to the community is important and so are more current efforts.
