Nomination Info

Communitas Nomination Process

To nominate one or more companies, projects or individuals, please fill out one Nomination Form, select a category, write in the name of the nominee and the title of nomination. Add all nominations to this form. For each title of nomination, fill out a Form A telling us about the nomination. Please limit each explanation to two pages, plus any accompanying materials such as photos, DVDs, sustainability reports, news clippings, etc. There are no special binders or presentation requirements.

Self nomination is permitted. Nonprofits with paid staff that provide human services are not eligible for recognition in categories that are part of their mission. However, a charity hospital for instance, could nominate a volunteer or could enter a category for green or sustainability programs. A civic group or volunteer board could be recognized for their community involvement or philanthropic activities.

After reading the materials, judges may have questions and reserve the right to email the nominator with specific written questions. Nomination forms can be filled out and entered online or hard copies sent to the Communitas Awards.
