Regional Awards

September 1, 2020  |  By: NAHU

Unless otherwise stated, the deadline for receipt of all applications and their supporting documentation is April 5.

Here are some things to know about the electronic application.

• The applications include all of the documentation eliminating the need to go back and forth between the application and the guidebook.
• The application is formatted in Excel and allows for automatic point calculation.
• Electronic submission is done via file sharing so there is no limit on the size of the file being shared.

Please note:
• If you choose to print the application, make sure to preview the print job.
• The document is primarily set up for a landscape printing. If the document looks askew, make sure that landscape is selected for the page format.
• The column title “Verified by Awards Committee” is not included in the print document, it is only pertinent to the Awards Committee.
• “Highlighting” is a generic term for emphasizing or calling out, underlines, circles, stars, etc. are acceptable means of highlighting.
