What makes a Good Nomination Package?
Award recipients are chosen by a Selection Committee made up of representatives from the presenting sponsor ATCO, the regional participating FCSS offices, and the Grande Prairie Volunteer Services Bureau. When reviewing the nomination packages, we look for things like diversity of involvement, amount of time spent volunteering, creativity of volunteerism, demonstration of leadership and how the nominee inspires the spirit of volunteerism in others.

When completing a nomination package, we suggest that you consult with your nominee to find out where else they are volunteering so that you are submitting a complete perspective of the youth's volunteer efforts.
