Award Nomination Forms
Nomination forms can be found on the Master Gardener website.
Two awards will be given for the following - MG of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Project of the Year, Excellence in Education, County Agent of the Year, and Newsletter of the Year - based on the county's membership size. County size is categorized as 50 members or less and 51 members or more. This membership count is based on your "active and in good standing members."
Each award form has detailed information specific to that award. In an effort to provide greater uniformity for the judging process, entry submissions are to be limited to the parameters put forth on the nomination form for each award. All awards will be judged on the volunteer work performed in 2016. Judges for the awards will be selected by the MG Coordinator and the decisions of the judges will be final.
All nominations need to be submitted from the local extension office after the county agent in charge of the county MG program or the MG President has reviewed and signed the form. Please send all forms as a Word or PDF document. All photos should be high quality digital JPEG format and sized for a PowerPoint presentation. Please submit either on a CD or via e-mail. To ease the judging process please make certain all forms are completed and signed and please send in all completed nominations from your MG program together at one time.
Submit the nominations electronically via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org OR you may mail them, postmarked by January 15, 2017, to Janet Carson, MG Awards, 2301 S. University Ave. Little Rock, AR 72204.
If you have any questions, please call our office at 501-671-2237. Good Luck!
