Guidelines for Submitting Statements and Photos

Statements and photos are optional. However, submitted statements and photos are displayed on NISOD’s website and on video terminals located throughout the conference facility.

Please submit your materials by April 14, 2018 via the Submit Online button at the bottom of this page. Materials submitted via email cannot be accepted.


We want to know what inspires and motivates you in your work; what strategies help drive your success; and/or what words of wisdom you might pass on to others (50 words). Selected statements are displayed on our website and on video screens located throughout the conference facility. NISOD reserves the right to edit all statements. (Note: Please do not submit a bio, which we are not able to use.)

**Please check out the sample statements from past NISOD Excellence Awards recipients before you submit your statement.**


We would like a photo of you in your work environment, preferably with students. If you do not work directly with students, please submit a photo of you interacting with colleagues. We want photos that show the essence of what you do at the college.

Photo should be in color and needs to be at least 3×5. No headshots, please. The electronic file must be labeled college_lastname_firstname.jpg. (For example, Jane Smith from Austin Community College would be austincc_smith_jane.)
