The team here at Canada's Champions of Change
has put together these eight tips for filling out a nomination form. We know the nomination form takes time; at least these tips will help improve the odds. Here they are:1/ Before you nominate, talk to your volunteer
. Ask them about why they got started and get details on exactly what their volunteer work is.2/ Make sure to include dates whenever possible.
This really lends credence to your nomination as a whole.
3/ If you have a photo, send it to us.
Images are essential if we want to feature your volunteer on the website.
4/ Tell us a story.
Where you can, back up your nomination with an anecdote that exemplifies why your volunteer deserves recognition.
5/ Make sure you use a correct email address.
We may need to email you if we have a question.
6/ Don't rely on links to back you up.
It's important that these nominations come from you, so tell us in your words why your volunteer is outstanding.
7/ Emphasize the nominee's recent volunteer achievements.
We really want to know how your volunteer is making change, today.
8/ Invest time in your nomination.
Nominations that are polished and well-composed stand out.
