The awards will be given in four categories:

  • Non-government/nonprofit organizations

Some criteria for nominees include:

  • Promoting excellence in a vocational field
  • Developing or supporting programs resulting in positive social action
  • Contributing to one's field of service
  • Mentoring others
  • Enhancing the image of one's vocation
  • Sustained service in one's vocation

Preference will be given to those who live and work in the South Hill and Puyallup areas. Nominees must be non-Rotarians.

Nomination forms can be found at southhillrotary.org. Forms should be sent to Karen Hansen at karen@hansencomm.com and are due by Saturday (March 31).
