SuperAwardRecipient

GENERAL INFORMATION

Superintendent’s Awards are presented to individuals who go above and beyond normal expectations to support the District’s tradition of excellence.

Nominees can be employees, students, community partners, parents and volunteers.

Nominees will be considered for acts that fall under distinguished service, leadership, customer service, innovation and heroism.

Nomination forms must be filled out completely and with sufficient details. Incomplete forms with minimal descriptions will not be considered – and cannot be resubmitted after the deadline (unless it is for the next ceremony).

Ongoing projects and campaigns -- such as Leader in Me, Healthy Schools, etc -- will be recognized only with milestone achievements (initiation, unique circumstances, special status earned).

Past recipients of a Superintendent's Award cannot be re-nominated for a second award for similar actions if it has been less than two years.

Nomination forms must be sent as a PDF or Word attachment to superawards@neisd.net by the nomination deadline. (See dates below.) Nominations received after the deadline will be kept for the next ceremony.

The judging committee reserves the right to say no to any nomination not suited for these awards.

EMPLOYEES
Employees should be nominated for performing actions that do not fall under their required job duties or for actions that would not be a normal expectation of them. These actions should directly and positively impact their school or community.

In your form, demonstrate the time, frequency, effort and thoughtfulness they have put into their actions to support the District.

STUDENTS
Students can be nominated for self-initiated projects or acts that benefit others. The service/assistance or good deed must be voluntary and not part of any curriculum, graduation requirements or class project.

In your form, demonstrate the time, frequency, effort and thoughtfulness they have put into their actions to support the District.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS
Explain -- with specific examples -- how the partner has contributed to the District via services, donations and/or volunteer support.

In your form, demonstrate the time, frequency, effort and thoughtfulness they have put into their actions to support the District.

PARENTS/VOLUNTEERS (groups and individuals)
Demonstrate – with specific examples – how your group has taken extraordinary measures to support your campus, department or community through new or innovative projects/ideas.  These activities include those that earn special recognition or achievements, and whose impact goes beyond intended scope. Not all volunteer groups, such as PTAs and Watch D.O.G.S., are eligible for awards. Only the most active and extraordinary will be considered.

While all individual volunteers give freely of their time and talents, only the most active and dedicated can be considered for this special recognition. An individual volunteer who has contributed a year or more of service can be considered. Extenuating circumstances will be considered for special accomplishments.

In your form, demonstrate the time, frequency, effort and thoughtfulness they have put into their actions to support the District.
