Outstanding Townshippers Awards

Awards Ceremony:  

The 17th annual awards is planned for the morning of September 17, 2016, as part of the Townshippers’ Day opening ceremonies at the Brome fairgrounds.

 

Who Is Eligible:

Outstanding Townshippers awards are given to people selected from nominations received from the public. Candidates are those who have made considerable contributions to the life of the Eastern Townships English-speaking community, either within their local community or the Townships community as a whole. They are people who have given of themselves, beyond the usual expectations of their job or profession, through volunteerism, social activism, mentoring, or philanthropy.

Candidates can come from all walks of life (advocacy, art, business, education, community organizations, health and social services, etc.) Candidates may be an individual, a couple or a group, of any ages, as long as they have lived in the historical Eastern Townships. Nomination may also be made posthumously. Exclusion: Townshippers’ Association’s employees and board of directors are not eligible to nominate or be nominated for the Outstanding Townshippers award.

 Important: A maximum of two Outstanding Townshippers’ awards are awarded annually;

Only completed applications that meet the required criteria will be considered.

 

 

What Information Do I Need To Provide In My Nomination?

You will be asked for the following information:

  • Your name and contact information;
  • The candidate’s name and contact information;
  • An explanation of the candidate’s accomplishments/contributions.

We will also need a letter of support, along with the authors contact information, written by someone other than yourself, which speak to their contributions. The letter should answer the following questions:

  • How do you know the candidate?
  • What type of work has the candidate accomplished?
  • What is it about this person’s work that sets him/her apart from others doing similar work?
  • How has their contribution improved or impacted the community?

 

What Will Happen To My Nomination?

Once you submit a nomination, all names and other possible identifying information are removed from the application documents by Townshippers’ Office Manager. They are then delivered to the selection committee – comprised of two employees and three board members from Townshippers’ Association – who will review the submissions. [Exclusion: Townshippers’ President, Executive Director and Office Manager are not eligible to sit on the selection committee.] Nominations and selection information are kept confidential. Nominees will only be contacted if they are selected to receive an award.

 

The Selection Committee will be conducting blind evaluations on the nomination packages based solely on the information provided in the package. Incomplete nomination packages will NOT be considered. 

The following documents are mandatory as part of a complete nomination package submission:

  • Completed “nomination form”
  • Letter(s) of support/recommendation (minimum of one)
