TIPS TO WRITING A GOOD FELLOW NOMINATION

The Fellow award is typically given to members who have contributed to the NSS over a period of years.  A good nomination letter should be no more than two pages in length and contain hard-hitting facts about what the member has done to warrant the award.  Your nomination letter should be filled with "meat" and not "filler."  Tell what the member has done (cause and effect) and paint a clear picture for the Awards Committee members.

Encourage others to write a nomination letter (this usually enhances the member's chances of being selected).  However, supporting letters should be written so they can stand on their own merit.  Supporting letters should never be a "me too" or "I agree" type of letter.
