Do you know someone who has made exceptional contributions to landbird conservation? Nominate an individual or group for a Partners in Flight Award!
Partners in Flight Awards recognize exceptional contributions to the field of landbird conservation in the Americas. Nominees who have significantly furthered the mission of Partners in Flight and its goal of protecting priority migratory and resident landbirds and their habitats. Nominees will be evaluated in five award categories: Leadership, Investigations, Public Awareness, Stewardship, and Lifetime Achievement.
Before submitting a nomination please read the Nomination Guidelines, which include the description of each category so you can select the most appropriate category for your nominee. Also check the list of Past Recipients; 2017 awardees are featured here. Complete one nomination form, using either this Word document (email to [email protected]) or the SurveyMonkey form, for the category you have selected in which to nominate an individual or group. If the nomination is for an individual who works as part of a group, provide examples of the specific accomplishments of that individual within the context of the larger group effort. If you use the SurveyMonkey nomination form, it is strongly advised that you copy and paste from a saved Word document in case of difficulties with the online form.
Because the success of a nomination depends greatly on its quality and thoroughness, please read carefully and provide all information requested in the nomination form. Provide specific examples reflecting firsthand knowledge of the nominee’s accomplishments relative to the selected award category. Do not assume that your nominee’s accomplishments are known to reviewers, and avoid relying on references to other information sources such as website links. Ensure that you have contacted, in advance, three people familiar with the nominee, to discuss or collaborate on the submitted nomination. Explain fully the significance of the nominee’s accomplishments, and identify clearly the scale of those accomplishments. Add space as needed to fully answer each nomination section. The nomination must stand on its own merit.
Nominations will be reviewed by the Partners in Flight Awards Committee. The Committee reserves the right to reassign a nomination to a different category from which it was originally submitted. To be eligible, projects or activities must have been initiated after 1990.
Please submit your nomination by midnight Mountain time January 14, 2019.
