Nominations

The nominations for honors and awards covered by the DLSAA Honors and Awards System are solicited from the general membership or the DLSAA Excom. In all cases, however, nominators must have read the qualifications and criteria for the award and believe that their nominees, from casual investigation, are qualified. The following is a summary of the accepted nominators, committees, and approving body for the awards:

The exemplary and sports honors committees and the Excom will, when applicable, accomplish the following upon receipt of nominations:

  • Study the nominations and determine if they are worthy of further investigation and compile a 'long list;'
  • Commission a table research for those in the 'long list' to arrive at a 'short list;' Commission investigative research for nominees in the 'short list;'
  • Decide on the awardees from the researched 'short list;' and
  • Present the selected awardees to the DLSAA Board for approval or confirmation.

The DLSAA reserves the right to reject any and all nominations at its sole discretion.
