What kinds of information do I include?

Your nominating statement helps the awards committee understand why your story, or the nominee’s story, inspires others and makes you proud to be a Scripps alum.

  • Tell us the story any way you like. Details are welcome. Brevity is fine.
  • Working with a group of alumnae friends can be fun. Please list names and class years of all nominators.
