Tips for Successful Entry

Please keep in mind that your nomination is the only information the judges will have when evaluating the nominee. Please ensure nomination forms are complete and detailed.  And don’t forget to spread the word! The more nominations and information our judges have on your nominee, the better! So encourage folks who share your admiration for this fantastic admin’s talents to submit a nomination too!

Judging and Scoring

Each year, The Admin Awards appoints an independent board of 10 judges to evaluate nominations and carefully select the finalists and winners who they believe best meet the criteria for each award category.

The judges panel, lead by Colleen Barrett, President Emeritus of Southwest Airlines, is comprised of well-respected and highly qualified senior executives, administrative professionals, dignitaries and educators from the local business community.

The judges independently score each nomination based on quality and effectiveness of the nominations received. Each judge is allowed complete discretion throughout the entire evaluation process. After all of the entries have been scored, our online system will calculate the total score for each nomination. The top five nominees will move forward as finalists and the winner will be announced at the awards luncheon.
