Five Tips for Writing a Winning OTM

  1. Try to get the max amount of words required  by explaining how  the student, staff member, or program goes outside of what is normally done.  Be descriptive so people who read the OTM wish they could be there.
  2. Write the OTM right after the event, yes they are due on the 5th but writing it right after will make the process easier for you to write them.  Also make sure your nomination is month specific! It is very important to highlight the outstanding things the nominee did, and how, in the month of nomination.
  3. Define acronyms; they are not always universal! The only acronyms you should use are NRHH, SAACURH, NACURH, and RHA.
  4. Make sure you are using the correct category for your nominee.
  5. Presentation is key! Using quotes will add a flair to it, but proofread the OTM to make sure you are clearly saying what you want to say. Look out for bad grammar and spelling errors!
