Guidelines

Eligibility
All community banks with a community service or volunteer program, helping to sustain communities across the nation are eligible to be nominated for the 2014 National Community Bank Service Awards. Entry is free for all community banks and multiple entries are encouraged. You may nominate your own bank!

Judging Criteria
Service programs do not need to meet all of the judging criteria, however, nominations are evaluated on four criteria:

  1. The program’s impact on the community. How well the service program solves the problem it set out to alleviate? (The positive changes the project has made on the community)
  2. The creativity or innovative nature of the service program. Did you design this service effort organically or was it already established. (What makes this project special or unique)?
  3. The involvement of bank employees in the service program. (What percentage of bank employees are involved in the project, does bank staff have direct involvement.)
  4. Average time donated by bank employees. (How many hours on average, have your bank employees donated?)

Submitting media clippings, photographs or other materials illustrating a bank’s service program efforts and success are helpful, but optional.p>
