The nomination period for the 2020 Mission Award is March 1 - April 17, 2020.
The AFS-USA Mission Award recognizes an individual who holds, or has previously held, a volunteer leadership role at the chapter, team, or national level. This award recognizes an outstanding volunteer who has made a significant impact in promoting the core values and mission of AFS through their leadership.
A nominee must be a currently registered AFS-USA volunteer and active for the past 5 years, in compliance with AFS-USA and Department of State guidelines, and not a past recipient of the Mission Award.
A complete nomination includes one nomination form and one reference form, unless a volunteer is self nominating, in which case two reference forms are required. The reference is required to be written by an AFS-USA registered volunteer. The nominator should make sure that the reference is submitted before the deadline.
To avoid duplicate nominations, please speak with volunteer leaders in your team about your intent to nominate.
