How do I nominate someone for an (AAWA) Amazing Airdrie Women Award?

To nominate someone click here until midnight Nov 1, 2024 and fill out the nomination form. A nomination is easy. You just need your nominee’s name, and contact info plus a brief explanation of why you think they should be nominated in any of the categories. PLEASE NOTE WE WILL MAKE THE FINAL DETERMINATION OF WHICH CATEGORY THEY ARE PLACED IN BASED ON THE INTERVIEW PROCESS.

All nominees MUST be over the age of 15 as of Nov 1, 2024.


Is anyone eligible? Members of the media are not eligible to be nominees. Immediate family members of Frog Media Inc employees and contractors are not eligible. Frog Media reserves the right to research all candidates and exclude any nominee who proves to be falsely represented, or who has slandered and/or defamed Frog Media Inc and its employees and contractors. Frog Media reserves the right to cancel any nomination.

Previous winners are not eligible for nomination. We do not accept self-nominations except in the category of Amazing Workplace.

The person I want to nominate lives outside the city limits but they work and/or volunteer in Airdrie, are they eligible? Unless this is the RURAL REP category (which is a 25 km radius of Airdrie with a rural address), then yes, you may nominated them but you must show a strong connection to Airdrie. She must either work or volunteer in Airdrie and we will require two sources of recommendations to prove the volunteer commitment to the community. 

Can I nominate more than one person? Yes you can nominate as many as you want as long as you fill out a separate and completed form for each nominee.

 Can I nominate someone in more than one category? Yes but please note we will make the final decision on which category they are selected for.

 Do I need to get the nominee’s permission to nominate them? Yes. We have wasted too much time and resources over the years trying to track down nominated people who did not want the recognition or attention so we now require you get their permission and all their contact info. We interview every nominee who will be featured in the magazine.

Can I nominate someone who has been a nominee in the past? Yes, but we do not accept nominations for previous winners in any category.

How are the recipients selected?   60% of the decision is the responsibility of the airdrielife editorial team, the AAWA sponsors and previous recipients of the awards (Each member has one vote).
