COVID-19 Updates: Fall Semester
How can I create the strongest nomination possible?

Provide concrete examples of the ways in which the nominee has contributed to student success when you fill out the form.

How much do I need to write about my nominee?

You can write up to 500 words, but there is no official minimum. Your nomination could be much shorter, as long as you provide information that demonstrates why your nominee should win the award.

I noticed that the people who have won the award so far are faculty members or members of Middlebury’s administrative staff. Are staff members from groups like Facilities and Dining Services eligible?

Absolutely! All staff members are eligible for the awards, and we are actively encouraging nominations from all areas of the institution.

Can I nominate someone for work done just during the past year or does the work need to reflect effort over many years?

You can nominate someone for their work over the long or short term.

The person I would like to nominate is only here during the summer and works at another institution during the school year. Are summer employees eligible?

Yes, full-time employees and employees who work at the Language Schools, Bread Loaf School of English, and Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference during the summer are eligible.
