How are the veteran nominations judged?
Nomination Time Period The Indiana Veterans of the Year accepts nominations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Although the nomination portal on the Internet is never closed, nominations received after midnight on August 31st each year will be counted toward the following year's award. Example: Any nomination received between September 1, 2015 and August 31, 2018, are eligible for the 2018 Award. Each nomination automatically receives a date and time stamp when submitted which is used to determine which year that veteran is eligible for the award.
Important Note: The Kentucky Veterans of the Year only accepts Online nominations! Here is our reasoning... 1) Online nominations are in real time, immediately submitted, and date and time stamped 2) Nominations sent via "Snail" mail are subject to the United States Postal Service's (USPS) prompt and expeditious handing of the mail. Should the USPS lose or fail to Post Mark the nomination submission immediately, it appears as if the nominator failed to nominate their veteran within the deadline. In this event, The Indiana Veterans of the Year cannot know if USPS or the nominator failed to meet the guideline.
