How do I nominate someone?
Nominations opened on February 27 and have been extended for the foreseeable future to allow you the opportunity to recognize more of Sierra Nevada’s best.
Can I nominate more than one person?
Yes, you can nominate as many people as you want but only one per hour. Nominate someone then come back in an hour to nominate someone else!
Can I nominate the same person twice?
There is no need to nominate anyone more than once. The number of nominations for each person has no influence on winning and each person will only show up once on the voting platform.
How will winners be decided?
You get to decide! Nominations will close on July 31 or when we meet our nomination threshold. Voting will open to the public on August 13 and close September 10. You can vote once per day, every day during that period.
When and where will winners be announced?
We will announce 40 finalists in early September and then the Top 10 Influential Women of the Sierra Nevada Award winners will be unveiled at the Awards luncheon on October 28. This luncheon will feature an inspiring keynote, award presentation and networking lunch. We encourage friends, family, and colleagues to join us!
