Email your submissions to dpnmawards@nmdemocrats.org by March 7, 2016

Greetings Fellow Democrats,

DPNM is announcing an exciting awards program to recognize Outstanding New Mexico Democrats, for 2015. The DPNM Budget and Finance Committee will select two winners from each Congressional District.

We want to thank you for your faithful leadership. Through your guidance and inspiration, registered Democrats diligently volunteer and serve in extraordinary ways. This program will help us all celebrate their accomplishments and extend sincere gratitude, through statewide recognition. Please share with Democrats in your county through your normal process such as meetings, emails, social media, and forums. Any registered Democrat can make a submission by writing a narrative and to submit it electronically via county chairpersons.

7 Mar 2016 5PM is the submission deadline. Email to dpnmawards@nmdemocrats.org

500 words or less

Sample: (Just tell the story, facts, data, personal narrative)

“I’ve known Democracy the Democrat since 1912. He/She got my attention then when he/she…. In 2015, she/he tirelessly continued to serve our Party. She/he registered voters, wrote, spoke, volunteered, led, etc. The effect of her/his outstanding service resulted in the largest voter turnout we’ve ever had in our county. I’ve always looked up to Democracy because….”

We want the awards to reach into the heart and soul of our Party, by bestowing sincere gratitude for the many contributions diligent Democrats make each day, because most go unrecognized. One does not have to be rich nor famous, nor in some prominent position to be submitted for these important awards. We’re looking for outstanding service at the grass roots levels. Making selections will be the hard part, because we have so many “outstanding Democrats.” Please help our Party honor and celebrate their service.

Thank you! Let’s celebrate outstanding Democrats of New Mexico 2016. Budget and Finance Committee member Jeff Swanson will be coordinating this project on behalf of DPNM. Please review the below information and if you have any questions please contact Jeff at 505-850-3339 or dpnmawards@nmdemocrats.org for more information.
