Caring Award Nomination Form Guidelines for
Caring Award Nominations

Do you know someone who personifies caring and whose selfless contributions to society deserve recognition?

The Caring Institute is now accepting nominations for individuals from 9 to 99 years old. If you have someone in mind, learn more about our process by reading the Guidelines for Caring Award Nominations. Then tell us in 500 words or more why your nominee exemplifies caring and would be a worthy role model for others. If possible, please include two letters of recommendation that offer proof of a longstanding commitment to public service.


Thank you to all who submitted nominations for the 2013 Caring Awards. 

We are accepting nominations for the 2014 Caring Awards. The deadline for nominations is March 1, 2014.

Please give consideration to:

  • Length of service
  • Scope and impact of work
  • Challenges overcome
  • Imagination and innovation

Based on these criteria, a class of nominees is selected for the official ballot. Then the Board of Trustees and previous Caring Award winners cast their votes for those who are most outstanding. All winners are honored at a special ceremony, and young adult winners receive funds for college.

You may go online to submit your information. You will receive an email confirmation that the Caring Institute has received it.

Or simply fill in our printable form and send it, along with your letter of nomination, to:
