Campbell Award Nominations



The 22nd annual Marie and Martha Campbell Award for Staff Excellence is your opportunity to acknowledge the worth and dedication of a valued staff member. This may be someone with whom, or for whom, you have worked.  Please show your appreciation by nominating a colleague for this award in recognition of his or her outstanding contributions to the Libraries.  The award will be presented at the 2015 Spring Service Recognition Celebration. The honoree will be honored with a name plaque and a photograph (optional), displayed in Norlin Library in public acknowledgment of the Campbell award. 


What is the area of excellence being recognized?

The Campbell Award emphasizes service to the Libraries, not to the University as a whole or to the community. A staff member may be nominated for accomplishments during the recent year, during several recent years, or for a specific time period (such as for outstanding performance on a specific project).


What is the Award?

The award is a cash prize of $1,000.00, subject to taxation. (Alternatively, if the money is used for Libraries-related activities there is no tax.)


Who may nominate staff?

Any member of the Libraries staff or faculty may nominate any full-time permanent Libraries staff person.  We recommend that you not tell the employee whom you nominate. Re-nominations are encouraged; a new nomination form for this year is required, but nomination letters may be resubmitted or updated. Anonymous nominations and self-nominations will not be accepted.


How do you nominate someone?
Nominations: Please complete the nomination form here: https://cuboulder.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_9n3tS7LtF01NnYp
Supporting documentation: Please ask for supporting documentation to be submitted here: https://cuboulder.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_cXXM0wAYVIqwUoR


What else should be included?

In addition to your nominating letter, each nomination must include at least two (but no more than five) support letters or e-mail documents. Nominations and documents may be gathered from any department or division, not necessarily the nominee’s own. If you considered a previous nominee outstanding, we encourage you to submit that person’s name again, along with old or revised supporting documentation.


When is the Deadline?

The deadline for submission of nominations to the Awards Committee is 5 p.m. on Friday, April 3, 2015.


When is the Award Ceremony?

The Marie and Martha Campbell Award for Staff Excellence will be presented at the Spring Service Recognition Celebration in May.


Who are the Committee Members?


Nominations broadcast on the faculty/staff distribution list will be disqualified.


Questions and nominations should be directed to members of the Awards Committee.

As documentation is received, the Committee will send acknowledgments to the nominators via e-mail.
