  1. Nominee name, address and email;
  2. Year of completion, or anticipated completion, of neurosurgery training;
  3. Submission of a nomination letter (250-500 words) detailing the nominee's recent and relevant history of public service (descriptive articles or other relevant material can also be submitted); and
  4. Name, address and email of person submitting the nomination.
