  2. Review the complete award description and nomination requirements for the specific award Link
  3. Decide whether to submit the nomination via email or landmail Link
  4. Download and complete the nomination form Link
  5. Compile the required submission materials either electronically or in hardcopy depending on your chosen submission format Link
  6. Submit your nomination packet via email or via landmail Link

Submission Format

You have two options for submitting your nomination packet.

A. Email/Electronic Nomination Submissions

  1. All documentation must be combined into a single electronic file and sent as a single email attachment, beginning with the Nomination form.
  2. AEA requests that you compile the materials in the order specified in the Nomination form.
  3. The electronic versions of all the required materials should be compiled into one Word or PDF file and sent as an email attachment. Please do NOT send an email with multiple attachments. Please send as a Word document if letters of recommendation will be sent separately, so we may add them to your nomination packet easily.
  4. Each item in the nomination packet should clearly identify the nominee and the award for which he/she/they are being nominated.
  5. Letters of recommendation that must remain confidential can be sent electronically to the AEA office at awards@eval.org separately from the nomination packet, but must be properly noted on the nomination form, and sent electronically to arrive in the office by the deadline.
  6. Nomination materials that are not included in the electronic nomination packet or that arrive in the AEA office after the submission deadline will not be considered.

B. Landmail/Hardcopy Submissions

Please use this option only if electronic submission is not an option due to particular parts of your nomination being only available in hardcopy format, such as the need to include a book or report. Do not send both electronic and hardcopy.

  1. The Nominator must compile all nomination materials into a hardcopy packet and then make 5 copies of the hardcopy packet to send to the AEA office. (copy and send the materials as 5 complete sets rather than five copies of each individual document.)
  2. Each item in the nomination packet should clearly identify the nominee and the award for which they are being nominated.
  3. We request that you compile the materials in the order specified in the Nomination form before making your copies.
  4. Letters of recommendation that must remain confidential can be sent to the AEA office separately from the hardcopy nomination packet, but must be properly noted on the nomination form, and sent to arrive in the office by the deadline.
  5. Nomination materials that are not included in the hardcopy nomination packet or that arrive in the AEA office after the submission deadline will not be considered.

Nomination Form

The completed nomination form acts as a cover page for the nomination packet as well as an inventory of the nomination materials being submitted. Only those materials listed on the nomination form will be considered as part of the nomination packet.
