Nominations close December 31 for the 2005 ARRL International Humanitarian Award. The award honors an amateur or amateur group devoted to promoting human welfare, peace and international understanding through Amateur Radio. The annual prize recognizes Amateur Radio operators who have used ham radio to provide extraordinary service to others in times of crisis or disaster. A committee appointed by League President Jim Haynie, W5JBP, will recommend an award recipient to the ARRL Board of Directors, which will make the final selection. The committee invites nominations from Amateur Radio, governmental or other organizations that have benefited from extraordinary service rendered by an Amateur Radio operator or group. Nominations must include a summary of the nominee's actions that qualify the individual or group for this award plus verifying statements from at least two individuals having firsthand knowledge of the events warranting the nomination. These statements may be from an official of a group (for example, the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, a local or state emergency management official) that benefited from the nominee's particular Amateur Radio contribution. Nominations should include the names and addresses of all references. All nominations and supporting materials for the 2005 ARRL International Humanitarian Award must be submitted in writing in English to ARRL International Humanitarian Award, 225 Main St, Newington, CT 06111 USA. The award recipient receives an engraved plaque and is profiled in QST and other ARRL venues. Complete information on how to nominate is available on the ARRL Web site.
