Judging criteria
Nominations will be judged against a set of criteria. Nominations do not have to address all the criteria, however, the more evidence and examples you can provide of your nominee’s excellent organising practice the better their chances are of recognition by the judging panel.

Judging panels
There are nine NUT Representative of the Year awards, one for each region in England and one for Wales. Similarly, there are nine Officer of the Year awards.

The nominations for the regional/Wales awards are judged by regional/Wales panels convened by the NUT regional/Wales secretaries and consisting of the local NUT Executive members.

Subsequently, the winners of the regional/Wales awards are considered by the NUT’s Executive for the national awards.

Announcement of the winners
The winners of the regional/Wales and national awards will be announced on the NUT website.

Presentation of the awards
The regional/Wales awards will be presented at regional/Wales events.

The National Representative of the Year and National Officer of the Year awards will be presented at Annual Conference.
