The Process

Our community is invited to nominate online throughout the month of October.  By mid November community members volunteer to “blind read” and score nominations. The top scoring nominations will be notified of their status as Impact Awards Finalists and invited to interview with our Impact Awards Committee. In January,  Impact Awards Recipients will be announced. All nominees, finalists, and recipients will be honored at the 23rd Annual Impact Awards Celebration on March 19, 2015.
