Supporting Letters

Supporting letter writers are responsible for uploading their letters to the nomination system.

Once you have entered a supporting letter writer's name and email into the appropriate text boxes, select "Send Request Now." This action will generate an automated email with an upload link directed to the email address of the person entered.

The upload link will expire once the supporting letter writer has uploaded their document. You can resend the upload link by selecting "Resend" or change the supporting letter writer by selecting "Change."

You may submit your nomination even if the supporting letter writer has not uploaded their document. The supporting documents must be uploaded by the honor deadline or they will not be included in the nomination package.
