    1. Nominees must be a REALTOR® in good standing. 2. Nominees should have contributed to a program that improves the livability of a community. Those activities aren’t limited to real estate or housing issues. 3. Nominees should have made a significant contribution of personal time, but contributions of money, materials, or other resources will be considered by the judges as well. 4. Nominees will be judged on level of personal contribution, impact of personal contribution, broadness of impact, and the project’s suitability as a role model for other REALTORS®. 5. The award is intended to recognize individual contributions, not association/board- or company-wide efforts. However, if an individual can be singled out as instrumental to the success of a group effort, he or she is eligible. If the achievements of two people (such as a married couple or co-founders of an organization) absolutely cannot be separated, they can enter as a pair and their entry will be considered as one. 6. Some portion of the nominee’s community work must have taken place between during the time period indicated, but judges will also consider ongoing efforts outside that time frame that demonstrate a depth of commitment. 7. Nominees should be able to document the results of their individual involvement though published reports and/or testimonials from the organization they served or the people they helped. 8. Nominations must have completed the online entry form to be considered. 9. REALTORS® may nominate themselves or may be nominated by someone else, such as another REALTOR® member, a state or local association/board, or the community organization they served. 10. Grant awards will only be issued to a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Questions? Please call OAR staff at 503-362-3645.
