Judging Process and Responsibilities
A committee of business experts, public sector leaders, academics, and nonprofit and health-care professionals has been selected to review all applications in a single category.
There is only one round of judging per award category; providing that, any partnerships also nominated for the Health Means Business Partnership or Business of the Year will undergo a second review— by a select set judges and evaluative criteria.
Nomination scores are based on a weighted rubric—with the highest value placed on the strategic development, execution, and proof of positive impact sections.
- Three (3) award winners will be selected per category (Healthy Community, Healthy Education and Workforce, and Healthy Environment)
- one (1) nomination will be honored as the Health Means Business Partnership or Business of the Year.
In the event that a partnership or business is selected as a finalist in more than one category, the partnership or business will receive the award for the category where they earned the highest total score. The partnership with the second highest score will receive the award for the subsequent category.
In the event there is a tie between finalists, a forced ranking will be based on the judge's qualitative review.
Finalists will not be confirmed or announced until all participating entities have validated the submission.
