Time Is Running Out to Nominate a Military Spouse of the Year

by Hank

The deadline to submit nominations for the 2009 Military Spouse of the Year award from Military Spouse magazine is coming up on Wednesday, October 8th.  If you want to nominate your spouse, you can do so at www.msoy.milspouse.com.

Winners from every branch will be selected starting in January, and the final winner will be announced nationally in Military Spouse magazine’s June issue and will be honored during the second annual Military Spouse of the Year awards ceremony during National Military Spouse Appreciation Week in May.

The winner will be expected to make a few public appearances, write a monthly column in Military Spouse magazine, and write a blog during his or her year as the Military Spouse of the Year.  Nominees must be the spouse of a current member of the U.S. military, and the contest is open to any spouse whose husband or wife is serving on active duty, Guard, or Reserve in any branch of service. The winner will be chosen based on his or her impact on community change, volunteerism, personal sacrifice, education, career pursuits, and other military spouse-related efforts.

The award will pay homage to the approximate 1.1 million current and over 20 million former military spouses.  Nominations can be made by any person or group, civilian or military, and anyone can submit multiple nominations through the website.  The award is being sponsored by USAA, the military focused financial services company.
