Each year, a selection committee is formed from former award recipients and members of the original Award Committee, and that smaller selection committee reviews all nominations and may gather additional information from the nominees’ colleagues in the process of their considerations.
The Amy J. Blue Awards Committee does not share the nomination text with the individual.

At the conclusion of the process, the Committee does notify all nominees that they were nominated, but not by whom or the submission text itself.

We encourage the nominators, even if their nominee was not one of the three recipients, to indeed congratulate and thank them, and come to the award ceremony itself.
All nominees and nominators are invited to the award ceremony.

The Amy J. Blue Awards are funded by an endowment to which Amy’s colleagues, friends and family contributed, by the Kenneth M. Cuthbertson Fund, and by Human Resources Services.
