Submitting Your Nomination

Please submit your nomination by using the quick and easy online nomination tool. The online tool now makes it possible to save a nomination in progress and return to it later for completion and submission.

Before you submit your nomination, you will want to make sure you have answered completely all the questions on the nomination form, and that you have included your work phone number, school/division and department and email address, in case we need to follow up with you. We cannot accept incomplete or anonymous nominations. We will acknowledge receipt of your nomination. If you have not heard from us within two weeks, please email

Online Nomination Tool

To nominate an individual or a team via the online tool, please follow the steps below.

Think about how you want to tell your nominee's story.
Before logging into the tool, we recommend that you view the Distinction Awards essay questions so you can give some thought to the story you might tell. You may decide to prepare your essay beforehand and then copy and paste your answers into the tool. View our Tips for Writing a Nomination for more information.
