The NEA-New Mexico Recognition Committee and Board of Directors honor our selected recipients on an annual basis for NEA-New Mexico Hall of Fame and Special Recognition Awards. We wish to promote these awards and hope you can identify possible recipients in your local that would fit the criteria of the awards.

Tips for Award Nominators

Enlist the help of others (maybe during a region meeting) and make it a group effort.

  • Click on the Nomination Form link below to find out what documents are required to complete an award nomination.
  • Enlist the help of volunteers (maybe during the same region meeting) to obtain various segments. For example, depending on the award required documents, one person could:
  1. Obtain or write a Statement of Worthiness and email it as a pdf attachment to the nominator.
  2. Obtain or write a letter of support and email it as a pdf attachment to the nominator.
  3. Obtain or write another letter of support and email it as a pdf attachment to the nominator.
  4. Obtain supporting documents and email them as a pdf attachment(s) to the nominator. If these docs are certificates, articles, etc., scan and save as a pdf and email as an attachment(s) to the nominator.

If others will do one task, the nominator will have all the required documents to upload and submit a nomination successfully via the nomination link.
