This narrative is the sole instrument on which the nomination will be judged, and should be based on the criteria listed within each award category. Please include the significance of the work of the nominee to the community, populations or individuals served, and explain how rural people have benefited. Additional letters of recommendation will not be accepted to ensure equal consideration.
