Tips for Applying for the YAC Awards

  • Start the Application EARLY!: Deadline for submissions is June 15, 2018, but to truly leverage the application as a best practices tool, use the checklists throughout the year.
  • Laser Focus: Be strategic and choose one or two awards to focus on based on the passion of the committee. This can be especially rewarding for revitalizing committees.
  • Create an Application Process: Decide who will contribute, draft, and review the application. Assign tasks and set hard deadlines for completion.
  • Tell Your Story: Don't be overwhelmed by the narrative. Simply share your successes and strategies and what made your committee proud. Utilize testimonials and numbers to elaborate on those ideas to support your story.
  • Take Your Time: Don't wait until the last minute and have one person rush through the application.
