Nomination Criteria

Main page content

The Milgard School of Business at the University of Washington Tacoma invites nominations from the South Sound community (e.g. Pierce, Kitsap, Thurston and South King Counties) for its 18th Annual Business Leadership Awards.

As a nominator, please complete the online form indicating why you believe the nominee should be recognized as a leader in the South Sound Business Community. You may take a broad approach to discussing the nominee's accomplishments, but the letter should be descriptive enough to give the judges a sense of what he or she has accomplished. The letter may include any or all of these items:

The nominees's leadership qualities, internally within the organization;
How a nominee has helped grow his or her company, or industry; and
How the nominee has served the community.

Remember, this letter reflects your reasons for choosing this individual for recognition.
