Wanted: Your nominations for annual Catholic School Values Awards

School officials are already planning for the 2010 Celebrating Catholic School Values: Scholarship and Career Achievement Awards program, which will be held on Nov. 3 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

Celebrating Catholic School Values is one of the archdiocese’s premier events each year to showcase its Catholic schools.

Many recipients from past Celebrating Catholic School Values programs tell archdiocesan officials that they consider their career achievement award the greatest honor of their life. They cherish the award because it represents the values they espouse every day as a result of their education in Catholic schools.

Each year, Catholic education officials ask the public to nominate one or more Catholic school graduates who exemplify the values of a Catholic education.

Archdiocesan school leaders are looking for individuals whose ethics, leadership, service and achievements are significant to their community. Nominees can include men, women, clergy, religious and members of minority groups. Current Catholic school students and employees are not eligible.

Nomination forms are available on the Office of Catholic Education’s Web site at Search under “public downloads” and click on “CCSV nomination criteria and form.”

Judges ask that you provide as much information as possible about your nominee(s). Also, nominees should not be told that they are being nominated. Incomplete forms cannot be considered. All nominations will be kept confidential.

Please return nomination forms by May 13.
