Are you ready to submit your nomination for the Friday Star of the Week Award? I hope so!
The Nomination Form can be found HERE.
Here are the nitty-gritty details about the award rules and procedures:
Every week on Funtastic Friday, a new Star of the Week will be announced! I created the Star of the Week award because I wanted to offer a fun forum for readers to have the opportunity to publicly appreciate someone important in their lives – a friend, a family member, or even themselves.
So the Star of the Week is chosen from reader nominations! Every winner also receives a free prize! See the bottom of this post for prize details.
While you can nominate anyone for the award, I strongly encourage you to nominate yourself! I want to acknowledge you and all of your efforts. Now is your chance to be seen and to SHINE!
If you feel self-conscious about nominating yourself, please know that my default policy is to announce ONLY the recipient of the award, not the nominator. In other words, the nominator has the right to remain anonymous when the winning announcement is made on the blog.
I am more than happy to publicly acknowledge the nominator on the website if he or she wants to be recognized, but I will not do so without the nominator's consent.
If you are nominating someone else for the award, you MUST have the permission of the nominee in order to submit your nomination. Your nominee must also understand that his or her image and story will be published on the website if he or she is chosen as the Star of the Week.
To nominate yourself or someone else for the Star of the Week award, please fill out the Nomination Form. You will be asked to provide a written description of what it is that you most appreciate about the person you are nominating.
You can include anything you want – tell us about your nominee’s fabulous personality traits, cool hobbies, or all of the little things that he or she does on a regular basis that might get overlooked. If you are nominating yourself, tell us all about YOU! All award announcements will be based on the information that is provided in the nomination form.
Please also include the first name of the person you are nominating. If your nominee is comfortable with the use of the first initial of his or her last name, please include that as well!
The only other requirement is that you MUST submit a photo of the award nominee – we want to see the shining stars that our winners are on our Funtastic Fridays! The nominator will be contacted via email for a photo if his or her nominee is selected as Star of the Week.
And now for the most fun part! Every U.S. resident who receives the Star of the Week award will get to choose a product from my Gold Star Award Winner collection on Zazzle** as a prize.
If your nominee wins, I will send the prize free of charge! I will contact the nominator via email in order to obtain for a shipping address for the winner.
Unfortunately, at this time, only people living in the United States are eligible to receive a free prize. I'm very sorry about that! However, non U.S. residents may still submit nominations and be announced as the Star of the Week on the website.
All submissions will become the property of Gold Star Revolution, and your submission may also be edited for length and/or clarity. I will never share your submissions with anyone else.
And if your nominee doesn't win right away, don’t worry – you won’t need to resubmit your nomination to be considered for a future award. All nominations will be kept in a pool that winners will be drawn from each week.
How does all that sound? Great, I hope! Please send in your nomination today by heading on over to the Nomination Form!
