*Long answer questions have a 750 word count maximum. Please be advised that judges are instructed to score honorees solely on the written content of this nomination form and in the content contained in letters of support.
Multiple submissions for a nominee will not result in higher scoring or consideration. Only the merits provided in this nomination form and letters of support will be considered. Specific merits are scored based on the number of contributions within each category, as well as the strength of the supporting examples provided.
When answering the Community Impact Questions, please consider demonstrating:
· The nominee’s actions that concretely display innovation and efforts above and beyond the normal standard for her industry. For example, this may include the development or implementation of programs or processes in technology, inclusion, or awareness.
· Anecdotes, examples, prior awards or recognition that are pertinent to each category, media and press references to accomplishments, or other support to validate statements about the nominee’s contributions in each area.
· Positive demonstration of the evolution of the nominee’s contributions in each category. For example, a clear anecdote or data showing that professional community involvement resulted in a growth of fifty women joining a STEM career or the development of a new on-site daycare program to allow twenty women to return to the workforce.
** This category is weighted most heavily for scoring.
