Frequently Asked Questions:
How do I nominate someone for a sectional award? Anyone is invited to submit nominations for sectional awards. To do so, fill out a nomination form and submit to USTA Northern no later than September 13.
What qualifies someone to receive a sectional award? Consult the specific eligibility requirements and criteria listed for each award.
Can I nominate someone for multiple awards in the same year? Yes. You may nominate the same individual/organization for as many awards as you see fit. On the nomination form, simply make sure to describe how your nominee meets the criteria listed for each of the awards you nominate them for.
Can I nominate myself for an award? Yes. To be considered for an award, we simply need the biographical information regarding a specific individual, facility, or group. This information can come from a relative, close friend, coach, client, or even the candidates themselves.
Can a person/organization receive the same award multiple times? Yes. There is no limit to the number of times that a person/organization can receive the same award.
Who chooses the section's award recipients? Unless otherwise noted, award winners are selected by the Sectional Awards Committee, a volunteer group that serves directly under the Section President. Members are appointed by the President. Every effort is made to ensure that committee membership accurately represents the diverse USTA Northern tennis community.
How will I know if my nominee is selected to receive an award? Award recipients will be notified in mid-October.
Where/when are sectional awards presented? All awards are presented at the annual Awards Banquet at a date and time TBA. Each award recipient will also be listed in the various USTA Northern publications, including the Yearbook.
