2023 Heart of Hospice - Rose and Sam Stein Award Criteria
We will notify award winners in June so honorees can make plans to attend the LeadingAge Ohio Annual Conference and Trade Show in Columbus, Ohio, August 29-31, 2023 to accept their awards. Although we are unable to defray winners’ travel expenses, each winning individual or organization will receive one complimentary registration to the LeadingAge Ohio Annual Conference and Trade Show.
You also will be notified in June if your nomination is not selected for an award. Even though not every entry will receive an award, all nominations are carefully considered and often lead to additional opportunities to “tell the story” of member accomplishments through such avenues as our website, media outreach, education events and other means.
Video Requirement for Award Winners
IF selected for the award, winners are asked to create a 90-120 second video sharing your thoughts and congratulations around receiving the honor.
We encourage you to take a moment to review some of the videos that were submitted for past winners to get some ideas.
