Dear Selection Committee,
I strongly believe that _______________ should be the recipient of this year’s Leadership Award.
As I read through the applications, including resumes and lists of achievements, I kept coming back to _______________. They may not have put in the most hours, or volunteered for the most prestigious organizations, but they have heart.
I’ll specifically call your attention to the recommendation letter from their supervising instructor, who is uniquely positioned to know the applicant’s leadership qualities. That letter paints a picture of how _______________’s leadership led to meaningful action and results.
I believe that it’s important for us as a committee to choose not the young person who has racked up the most president and vice president titles, but rather the one who has wholeheartedly thrown themselves into something about which they are passionate.
I’d love to meet one more time and discuss the finalists, but you should know that my vote is solidly behind _______________.
