MAKING A DIFFERENCE AWARD (MADA)

Nominations

Do you know of someone making a difference in the multiple births community?

 

Maybe it's someone in your local chapter that's really having an impact on area families. Or perhaps you read an article about someone doing amazing work to bring awareness to an issue that affects the multiple births community at an international level. It could be a media outlet that's really supporting your chapter's efforts, or adult multiple birth individuals or individual who is having an impact that should be acknowledged.

Nominations can be made any time. Simply read through the criteria below to see where your nomination fits best and fill in the form, including a photo of the nominee or logo if it's a corporate nominee. It's that easy!

How are the recipients of the awards chosen?
The MBC Board of Directors carefully review all nominations, verifying the nature and quality of the nominee's contribution. We vote on submissions, eliminating the possibility for bias. Where possible, MADA recipients receive their awards at an awards ceremony at the Annual General Meeting and Conference.
