Dear Virginia Residents,

Hamilton Relay, the contracted service provider of Virginia CapTel, is seeking your assistance in identifying candidates for the Hamilton Relay 2014 Deaf Community Leader Award. We are looking for individuals who are deaf or deaf-blind and who have been a positive influence in Virginia, demonstrating commitment to advocacy, leadership and enhancing the lives of those around them. The award will be presented around Deaf Awareness Week in September.

Hamilton Relay Deaf Community Leader Award Recipients from previous years include:

Brenda Estes - 2013 Deaf Community Leader Award Recipient
Alice Frick - 2012 Deaf Community Leader Award Recipient
Tom Dowling - 2011 Deaf Community Leader Award Recipient

Is there someone you wish to nominate for 2014?

A questionnaire is attached to assist in providing information about your candidate, including a brief description about the individual and what this person has done that causes you to nominate him/her. Please send your nominations directly to me by August 15th via e-mail, fax or by mail. My contact information is included under my signature below.
