OBA Awards: Committee Issues Call for Nominations
NOMINATION WRITING TIPS
Award Committee Chair Jennifer Castillo shares these suggestions:
- A respected lawyer or judge has no chance of winning if he or she is not nominated.
- County bars are encouraged to nominate themselves. Smaller bars have an equal chance to win because the number of members is considered in relation to the county bar activities accomplished for Law Day and/or for the entire year.
- A nomination that gives details or shares short stories about why a person deserves to win has a better chance of winning than submitting a bio. Don’t assume committee members know your nominee.
- Information about your nominee is better than letters of support. Don’t put this off until the last minute; start writing your short, concise nomination today. Your nominee deserves to be considered for an OBA award.
