A group can be nominated for a specific project such as a program, publication or event. Be sure to clearly state the name of the project in this case

- Lifetime Achievement - is not awarded every year. A nominee can be a group or individual that has contributed exceptionally over many years.
Nominators: Individuals or groups should not nominate themselves or projects that they have been involved in. Recognition of a job well done should come from an independent third party.
Repeat Award: Receiving one Carolinian Canada Conservation Award does not preclude receiving another one in the future for different work and/or in different categories (i.e. individual and lifetime achievement awards). Awards may be given to the same nominee more than once for different achievements (i.e. a group could receive two different awards at different times for different projects).
Nomination Form: Be Complete & Concise. Nominators should provide enough information to describe why the nominee should receive a conservation award. The form should be complete with every aspect that should be considered by the awards committee.
