All nominations are confidential; the person making the nomination will not be revealed unless the nominee is selected to receive the award.
At least one (1) letter of support must be submitted by someone other than the nominator. Multiple letters of support and/or other independent documentation of the nominee’s accomplishments will significantly strengthen the nomination.
The selection committee reserves the right to change the category of any nomination in order to better match the nomination criteria.
Nominators will be notified if their nominee is selected for the award to coordinate notification to the award winner with The Arc Oregon.
This year, award nominators and recipients may be asked to pre-record a message, with the support of our team, to be aired live at the awards ceremony.
