Submit a Nomination

We are currently accepting nominations! Deadline for submission of award nominations is February 1, 2023 at 11:59 pm Central.

Nomination Considerations

We encourage you to "toot your own horn" and nominate those who you work with, whom you believe deserving of this statewide recognition.

If you have nominated an individual or a program in a prior year, and that individual or program did not receive an award, please consider doing so again. Each year many worthy nominations are made but only one award per category can be distributed. It seems a shame that some very worthy nominees are only nominated once. The nomination committee strongly encourages re-submissions. Persistence can yield dividends.

Please consider making your nominations early for the 2023 Dakota Conference on Rural and Public Health.

Photo Requirement

Individuals, who nominate a SELECTED awardee will be responsible for submitting approximately 10 photos of the awardee that will be displayed during the awards presentation.

Presentation of Awards

The awards will be presented at the Dakota Conference on Rural and Public Health on June 15, 2023 at the Bismarck Event Center in Bismarck, North Dakota from 12:00 – 1:30 pm Central.
