Any VSCC employee may nominate a permanent classified staff employee for the Classified Staff Appreciation Award. This award recognizes classified staff for their commitment to excellence and the VSCC community.

Of the pool of nominees, a random drawing will be held to award one classified staff employee each month. Each month's recipient will receive a certificate and the opportunity to pick an item from the fit box. Nominations are good for the month of submission and the winner will be drawn and notified during the first week of the following month. Please be sure to nominate classified staff employees each month. Recipients of the award will not be eligible to receive the award again for the next four (4) months.

Please note that members of the Staff Council, excluding the Chair/Co-Chair, will also be eligible for the award since the drawing will be random and made by the Chair/Co-Chair of Staff Council. Self-nominations will not be accepted.
