Father Tracy Lawrence Awards Process

Selection Process

Each year the Board of Directors is responsible for reviewing the candidates for this award. Each committee
member carefully considers the eligible nominations for the award or honor and recommends the recipient(s) and

  1. Award recipients are not required to be Puerto Rican Parade of Rochester Inc. (PRPORI) member.

  2. An individual may not receive more than one community award in a year, nor may an individual receive more than one award for the same body of work.

  3. Joint recipients are allowed the award when the nomination is for the same project or for joint work extended over a long period.

  4. The PRPORI does not present this award posthumously, except in the case that the recipient's death occurs after the Award Selection Committee approves the nomination.

Note: For awards, a minimum of five eligible nominations are required before a committee may select an award recipient.


Any nominee not chosen for the award can be considered for future award(s). Nominators are encouraged to update or augment the nomination materials, if appropriate, prior to the next year's deadline.

Award Nomination Requirements
