The nomination letter should begin with a concise opening statement that briefly states why the nominee deserves an award. The statement should clearly outline the contributions the nominee has made and how his or her efforts have been helpful. Remember, the opening should not be longer than one paragraph.
Consider the kinds of personal qualities and skills for which the award is given and describe how the person you are endorsing possesses those qualities or abilities. List your nominee’s achievements. Reiterate your direct endorsement in the closure and offer to answer questions or give more information.
