Program Rules and Procedures for 55th Annual Governor’s State Conservation Achievement Awards

1) Winners may not be named in every category. Recognition will be based primarily on accomplishments during 2018. Prior records may be considered, but this will be left up to the judges. Immediate past winners are not eligible to succeed themselves in the same category of accomplishment for which they were recognized the previous year.

2)  Nominations may be hand-delivered or sent by USPS mail or other delivery service to the Louisiana Wildlife Federation at the address on the nomination form by the deadline of March 4, 2019.  Nominations may are submitted via the LWF website at lawildlifefed.org.

3) An essay of achievements should be attached to the nomination form for the nominee. The essay should describe the nominee’s accomplishments in 2018 (and previous years if relevant), including A) an explanation of their significance or impact and B) why the nominee’s accomplishments are important and worthy of recognition. The essay is required and should not exceed 3 single-spaced typed pages.  Information such as past recognition, organization memberships, etc. may be appended to the essay.  Documentation of accomplishments such as news articles, letters of support, photos, etc. should be included as a supplement to the essay. If a nomination is submitted for more than one category, a separate nomination form and complete essay must be submitted for each category entered. If available, please include a photograph of the nominee with the nomination and email to lwf@lawildlifefed.org.

4) Nominations that do not meet all standards and criteria will be returned to sender to be resubmitted with appropriate additions/modifications. Program judges may declare any nomination ineligible if proper documentation and supportive materials are not included. The decision of the judging committees will be final
