*It's time for you to nominate special districts and individuals that
provide exemplary public service to the people of Oregon!*

The Special Districts Association of Oregon's Awards Program gives
recognition to member districts for accomplishments which allow them to
provide better service to the public and honors individuals who have
greatly contributed to the success of their organization.  These awards
celebrate the ingenuity, creativity, and diversity of our members.

Within this program are two special recognition awards; the Outstanding
Special District Program award, and the Outstanding Special District
Service award.

*Outstanding Special District Program Award*
This award category recognizes innovative projects and programs,
outstanding safety, public information, public involvement in a district
decision making process, and outstanding achievement.

Efforts in these areas are considered in light of available resources
(i.e., smaller districts may have significantly fewer resources than larger
districts); therefore, three subcategories have been established for this

   - Districts with 5 or fewer employees;
   - Districts with 6-25 employees; and
   - Districts with 26 or more employees.

*Outstanding Special District Service Award*
This award category recognizes individuals who have contributed
substantially to the improvement and successful operation of his or her
special district.

Four subcategories have been established for this award:

   - Board Member;
   - Manager;
   - Employee;
   - and Volunteer.

*SDAO Board and Trust members are ineligible to be nominated for the
service award.*

*How do I submit an application?*
Complete the 2013-14 SDAO Awards Program nomination
which is available on our Awards Program page.  Please respond to each
question, attaching additional pages if necessary. Submit completed
nomination form(s) to SDAO, PO Box 12613, Salem, Oregon 97309-0613.
Nomination forms must be received by October 11, 2013 to be considered for
the 2013-14 Awards Program.

**To access links to PDF files you need Adobe Reader installed.*

*How are entries judged?*
Applications will be reviewed in October by the 2013-14 Awards Committee
using standard evaluation features such as: impact for other districts,
positive results, special purpose, increased safety, cost savings, improved
quality of service, innovation, and community need.

*What happens if I win?*
Award winners will be notified in November 2013.  Winners may accept the
award in person on February 8 in Seaside at the 2014 SDAO Conference Awards
Banquet.  Recipients who are unable to attend the conference may have
someone accept the award on their behalf, or request to have their award
mailed to them.
