Nomination Examples

I want to nominate Coach Sarah should be nominated because she has way of making everyone feel like they can achieve anything. Coach Sarah makes practices fun and exciting, and she never gets angry when we make mistakes. Instead, she helps us learn and grow.. Coach Sarah is truly inspirational and deserves to be recognised for all the wonderful things she does.
– Example
My PE teacher is awesome because he teaches us about more than just sports. He shows us how to be good people and how to work hard for what we want. One time he even carried me over the finishing line when I couldn’t complete my sports day race because I tripped and fell.
– Example
Coach Meera is not just a coach but also a friend and mentor. Her encouragement and positive words make a huge difference in our confidence. She creates little moments of successes and made sure our little lad felt part of a group and helped him make new friends when we were new to the area.
– Example
