Welcome to the Florida Commission for the Transportation Disadvantaged
2021 Transportation Disadvantaged Awards
It’s that time of year again to recognize the people who work so hard to make a difference in our world of Transportation Disadvantaged services. Please take this opportunity to nominate individuals, teams and organizations who have gone above and beyond in contributing their time and/or expertise to the Transportation Disadvantaged program.
We have provided a nomination form for each category that incorporates a questionnaire to be completed. There is still space for you to express yourself in a narrative format, but now there is specific data that will be used by the Awards Committee to compare the different nominations. Please take the time to answer each question. If you cannot answer a question, please state that you “don’t have or don’t collect the information” or, when appropriate, state it’s “not applicable”. These are Word-fillable forms, with a box to type in for each question. If the document does not allow you to enter information, click on ‘View’ tab in the upper left corner of your screen, then select ‘Edit Document’. This should change the form so you can enter information. Also, use your keyboards ‘Tab’ key to move from one box to the next. All forms are available here.
Please make sure to review the Awards Criteria (included on the Nomination Form) to ensure you have all of the required backup documentation prior to your submission. Do not include copies of training certificates or employee recognition documentation with your nominations. You may summarize this information in your narrative or support letter.
Please send us a digital photo of your nominee. We will need this photo for the awards presentation.
The deadline for submitting Award Nominations is August 6, 2021.
