Excellence in Partnerships Award Nomination Requests- S: 03 December 2021
I’m pleased to request your nominations for an outstanding partner within your area of responsibility for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Excellence in Partnerships Award and outstanding volunteer(s) for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers National Volunteer Award. These awards, which are co-sponsored by the Corps Foundation, will be presented in 2022 at the award recipients’ locations, in ceremonies that recognize their outstanding partnerships and service to the Corps.
The Excellence in Partnerships Award began in 2001 and is now in its twentieth year recognizing exceptional contributions by a partner providing substantial support to the Corps Recreation and/or Environmental Stewardship programs. Each year, the award recipient is selected based on accomplishment of management objectives, creativity, improvements in public awareness and education, serving diverse audiences, and involvement of other partners.
Nominations must be routed through each District to the MSC. Each MSC recreation/stewardship business line manager will electronically forward nomination packages assembled in accordance with the enclosed criteria and instructions to Francis Ferrell, CESAW-OP-LRJ , no later than 03 December 2021. A selection committee will review the nominations and provide me with recommendations for final selection.
Two informational webinars will be provided to explain the application process and answer any questions. Webinar invitations will be sent out one week in advance.
- Sep 8, 2021 from 1:00 – 2:00 Eastern
- Nov 3, 2021 from 11:00 – 12:00 Eastern
