As part of the selection process, our selection committee would like to speak with two other people who can further address the nominee’s impact on Minnesota and its communities. While family members are welcome to make nominations, the two references should be from outside the nominee’s family in order to give the committee a full picture of the nominee’s impact on the community. 

Please provide the names and contact information for two people who would be willing to talk about how the nominee meets the criteria for this award. These references should be different from the name of original nominator.

Please inform the references that their names have been submitted and that they may be contacted by selection committee members to discuss the nominee.
