Who can be nominated?

The nominee for the Leader of Tomorrow award must attend within Airdrie school attendance boundaries: http://www.rockyview.ab.ca/registration/attendance-areas/city-of-airdrie/2015-2016.

For all other categories, a nominee must be an individual or an organization - such as a business entity, not-for-profit organization, a volunteer-comprised grassroots committee or a community group - that resides (individual) or operates (organization) within Airdrie and annexation boundaries. https://airdrie.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapJournal/?appid=0edee862a3394c6eb4f2132f4c01f6cd

Nominations will be evaluated based on the individual/group’s volunteering efforts within Airdrie and annexation boundaries. (See above link.)

Self-nominations will not be accepted for groups and individuals. (Note: A nomination by staff of not-for-profit groups for their volunteers is acceptable.)

A nominator can only submit one nomination per category.

An individual or group that has previously received a Volunteer of the Year award for a specific category can no longer be nominated for the same category.

 

How do I nominate someone?

Only completed online nominations will be accepted (no paper nominations).

To complete the nomination, the nominator must:

  • have the nominee’s consent
  • provide complete and accurate nominee information: name of individual/business/group, mailing address, telephone and email address
  • provide a short biography and a narrative on why they are nominating this individual/group. The nominator must ensure accuracy and have the approval of the nominee to provide such information. Use the third-person point of view when writing about the person/group being nominated.
