Call for Nominations

  • Evanston Township High School and the ETHS Alumni Association are seeking nominations for the annual Distinguished Alumni Award. This program annually honors alumni who are noted in their field of endeavor and/or recognized for their expertise and good works by their peers and others. These Distinguished Alumni are people who exemplify the tradition of excellence fostered at Evanston Township High School. The awardees will be recognized at a public ceremony in December.

    To be nominated, alumni must have distinguished themselves through achievement, service, and/or contributions to society. Nominees must have graduated from or been enrolled at ETHS at least 10 years ago.

    Anyone may submit a nomination, whether or not you attended ETHS. Alumni may not nominate themselves. Posthumous nominations will be accepted. Using the accompanying form, please list the nominee’s "vitals" and explain—in 500 words or less—why this person should receive the Distinguished Alumni Award. Include your own contact information. Once the nomination is received, the candidate will be asked to provide additional personal information. For multiple nominations, you must fill out a separate form for each candidate.

    A Selection Committee will evaluate the nominations and select the recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Awards. All nominations will be kept on file and reconsidered for three years. After three years, a candidate must be renominated for consideration.

    To nominate an ETHS alumna or alumnus for a Distinguished Alumni Award, please complete the online form below. The annual deadline for submitting nominations is June 1.
