A panel of judges will review the nominations and decisions will be made based on information submitted and verified.

The selection process is multi-tiered. First, a group of finalists will be chosen from the general nomination pool, then an individual will be chosen each month to receive a Jefferson Award medallion. From our 12 recipients, one or two individuals will be chosen to represent the Northeastern Indiana area during an awards ceremony.

All medalists will be recognized on Fort Wayne's NBC News and www.fortwaynesnbc.com.
