Nominations can be submitted with three different options for sponsorship. Full sponsorship, partial sponsorship, and no sponsorship. For Delegates who are fully or partially sponsored to attend, it is of great assistance in the young person’s ability to attend the Forum, however we also recognise that this may not be possible or the case for every nomination.
If you have a young leader in mind that you would like to nominate but may not have the means to sponsor the nomination fully or partially, you are still welcome to submit their nomination. The National Leader Forum, upon request, can provide a thorough sponsorship pack to the individual to support their potential fundraising endeavours. This sponsorship pack includes a fundraising support letter from the Forum, with reference to our Host Parliamentarians, and a sponsorship email template to aid correspondence.
Nominating a young person alone is a significant investment in their leadership journey; in the nomination form, there is an opportunity for nominators to provide commentary on why they are nominating each young person. Upon nomination, each young person will receive this in their official invitation – a signal of their nominator's belief and value seen in them. For nominations without sponsorship, this question is an invaluable element of the nomination process.
