A nomination process is used for the Keisha Engley Inspiration Award. Nominations are sent to teachers, school staff, principals, service supervisors, and community members. Students must meet 3 out of 4 of the criteria listed and the nominator must be able to articulate why they meet the crieteria and why they think the student should receive the award.
