There is no fee to submit a nomination, and individuals may submit as many nominations as they like. Once the nomination has been submitted, the nominee will be notified and asked to submit an application as well. The complete nominee application must be submitted to be considered, and scoring will be based on both the nomination and the application.

More event details are available online, including ticket purchasing information, instructions on how to make a tribute gift and more information about each category. For questions, please contact Kristen Miller at or 206-496-8645.
