If you are interested in the opportunity to be selected as a representative from Michigan, please complete the nomination form by August 13, 2017. You must be an active first responder (police, fire, or ems) in the state of Michigan or currently enlisted in the U.S. Military/Michigan National Guard/Reserves to be eligible. You must also be available for travel the dates of September 22, 2016 to September 24, 2017.
The Michigan Remembers 9-11 Fund board members, executive director, and other members of the nomination committee will carefully evaluate all submissions. They will select the two nominees who are felt to best embody the spirit of selflessness, community service, and honor as those who answered the call on 9/11/01. Only those who are selected as finalists will be contacted.
If you would like to submit one recommendation letter from a former employer or community leader in addition to the two references you list in the application, you can mail such a letter to the address below. Again, such a letter is not required for your application but would allow the selection committee to learn more about you and your personal merits. The author of the letter of recommendation may be one of the two references you list in the application but this is not a requirement.
