RULES FOR SUBMITTING LANREMT AWARDS

1) INTENT:

LANREMT awards are designed to recognize individuals who have significantly contributed to local, state and national provisions, development and/or improvement of pre-hospital care delivery, educational and personal. These awards reflect both past and present contributions. The Nomination package is designed to yield a "wide picture" of the nominee's experience in EMS. Not all nominees will have experience or contributions in every category. This will not necessarily have a negative impact on their ability to receive a given award. The nomination package is simply being used to gather enough information so that each nomination can be objectively rated.

2) SIZE:

To allow for easy analysis, all nominations must be completed using the official LANREMT Nomination Package. Supplemental information such as support letters or copies of newspaper articles must be submitted on 8½" X 11" paper and attached to the rear of the nomination package. Nominations can be limited to 2-3 pages, but not to exceed twenty pages; however, they may be printed on both sides of the page. All nominations must be enclosed in a report cover, securely fastened along the left margin.

3) FORMAT:

All nominations must include the LANREMT face sheet. Typewritten or computer printed nominations are expected but not absolutely required. Photographs and newspaper articles, etc. may be affixed to the document to further emphasize local, state or national involvement of candidate. Audiovisual materials, such as videotapes, movies or slides, will not be accepted.

4) COPIES:

The original document of each nominee's award nomination package must be submitted. No copies are necessary.

5) DEADLINE:

The deadline for entries is May 15, each year. Entries postmarked after this date will not be accepted.

6) JUDGING:

Nominations will be objectively scored by the Awards Committee. The Awards Committee is selected by the board of LANREMT.

A) Unsuccessful nominations previously submitted must be completely updated before being resubmitted. Care must be taken to assure that letters of support refer to the award for which the person is being nominated.

B) Persons preparing nominations are advised that, although not strictly required, supporting documentation and a complete application are virtual requirements for a successful nomination. Submitting only the face sheet or a single page document in support of a nomination rarely results in a favorable outcome.

7) LIMIT ON AWARD NOMINATIONS:

An individual can only be considered for one award annually among those decided by the Awards committee. In the event that a person is nominated for more than one award, the Awards Committee will assign that nomination to one award category only. Such assignment is not an implied or expressed decision to present the award to that person.

8) INFORMATION TO INCLUDE:

Recommendations or support letters sent directly to the Awards Committee and not included within the package will not be considered or returned. The package must be complete upon receipt before the deadline.
