This year's review of nomination essays will take place during the last two weeks in November (nominations accepted through November 5). We realize that this is a busy time on campus, but the total time commitment for reviewers is approximately 3-5 hours. Past reviewers were touched and inspired by reading the stories of young people all over the world who are doing amazing things. Consider the couple of hours needed to review as a therapeutic and uplifting break from the end of semester grind!
