Each year any UKATA member can be nominated for a medal. Anybody can nominate a medalist and the only eligibility criteria for those nominated is that they are members of UKATA.
Each year we start from scratch with nomination and don't carry other nominations forward. If your nominee was unsuccessful last year, perhaps you'd like to nominate them again.
The medal would be in the form of a custom made 60mm diameter coin on a blue ribbon, presented with a velvet case for storage. Medal recipients from each year are invited to form a panel of judges for the following years medal awards.
Perhaps you know someone in the TA community who deserves to be recognised by us all for personal growth, overcoming adversity, service to TA or a contribution to the development of TA practice. Perhaps you know someone who has helped you or others or who embodies the spirit of TA.
