Nomination Process

 Honorees are selected from a list of nominees sent to us by the readers. An independent selection committee chooses the Honoree based on merits without bias. To nominate a potential Honoree, please send us an email of the reason, background info and attach a picture: Honoree@ArabAmerican.us . This process has been in place since 1995. Thank you!
