Thank you for submitting a Community Spirit Award nomination for an exceptional artists or culture bearer in your community. Once the nomination period closes on July 15th, all nominations that meet the eligibility requirements will be invited to submit a full application. This application requires a combined effort from both you, as the nominator, and the artist or culture bearer nominated. To make submission easier and to allow you time to coordinate with the nominee, we are including an example of what will be required in the full application.

PLEASE NOTE: this is only an example. After July 15th, if your nomination meets requirements, you will be sent a link to be completed for a full application. The full application should be submitted online between July 1, 2019 and August 31, 2019. 

If you have questions about the application process, please call the Program Manager for Fellowships at 1-605-348-0324 or email
