LFP Rotary opens nominations for The Jeff Award

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

The Rotary Club of Lake Forest Park seeks to recognize one business with a strong commitment to practicing High Ethical Standards and Public Values.

The Jeff Award is named after Jeff Weissman, Rotarian, and former owner of Great Harvest Bread Company in Lake Forest Park. In business, and as a contributing member of the community, Jeff exemplifies the standards and values defined in this award process.

This is a community-wide award, and any person can make a nomination. All nominees who meet the following criteria will be considered:

  • The nominee lives in Lake Forest Park (LFP) and runs a local business, which can, but does not have to be, located in Lake Forest Park.
  • Or, the nominee runs a business in Lake Forest Park, but does not necessarily live in the City of LFP.

The Jeff Award Selection Committee will consider the following qualities as they evaluate nominees and select a winner. 

Nominees are: faithful to the ethical codes of their vocation, of the law, and the moral standards of our community; fair and honest in the workplace, with competitors, in advertising, with customers and the public; respectful of other vocations and individuals.
Furthermore, nominees voluntarily serve in their vocation, community, or in international settings; and they have earned a reputation for high ethical standards and trust among business associates and in the community, which reflects well on our community as a whole.

You are asked to submit the official nomination form. In your nomination, use concrete examples to clearly explain how your nominee:

  1. Practices truth in advertising and promotion;
  2. Promotes fair business practices;
  3. Provides a benchmark for ethical behavior;
  4. Takes pride in his/her work, and the work of others;
  5. Builds goodwill and friendship;
  6. Finishes what is started;
  7. Keeps promises.

Nominations are due no later than December 13, 2013. Send by email or mail to LFP Rotary, PO Box 55983, Shoreline WA 98155-0983.

The Jeff Award Selection Committee will review all nominations. The winner of the award will be announced and honored at 2pm on December 15, 2013 at the Winter Farmers Market in Third Place Commons.
