The MVP Awards program is intended for workers who typically may not be publicly acknowledged for their efforts or
eligible to participate in any type of recognition or incentive programs within their companies.
Following are the levels and job titles for eligible workers employed by an NRCA member or nonmember roofing
contracting, distributor or supplier firm.
Roofing contracting firms—any field roofing worker, foreman or superintendent. The number of nominations per firm
must not exceed three per company branch.
Distributor and supplier firms—warehouse employee, warehouse foreman, driver or equipment operator. The number of
nominations must not exceed five per national firm.
Self-nominations are not permitted; rather, each participating firm or his or her designee is responsible for preparing
and submitting the entry form(s) and including supporting information—a minimum of 100 words. Input from
employees is strongly encouraged.
Criteria by which nominees will be evaluated
Nominees will be evaluated based on significant contributions in the following categories. (Nominees can be nominated
for more than one category; each category will be judged separately.)
Outstanding on-the-job performance: A nominee must demonstrate a strong work ethic and outstanding
workmanship in his or her area of responsibility and contribute creative ideas for problem solving.
On-the-job safety performance: A nominee must have an outstanding safety record and/or contribute to
the improved safety of the work crew.
Contributions to a team effort: A nominee should demonstrate support for co-workers and helping
others learn. He or she should demonstrate leadership, be respected by his or her peers, and show initiative and
resourcefulness in attracting new roofing workers and helping retain existing ones.
Community service and volunteerism: A nominee should be actively committed to participating in
programs that have a positive effect on a segment of his or her community and/or the general public.
Other noteworthy contributions and activities: These activities should reflect positively on an
individual personally and/or as an employee in the roofing industry (Examples include coaching, serving in the
armed forces, etc.).
Entries should be submitted as follows:
Complete the official entry form with the name and job title of the nominated employee. Be sure to check the
award category(ies) in which the candidate is being entered, and provide company name, address and other contact
information as requested.
For each award category in which a nominee is being entered, provide a detailed description (minimum of 100
words) of the specific attributes, activities and other factors that make the individual noteworthy or unique. Please
provide adequate detail so judges have a basis of comparison with other entries. Note: Entries submitted without
supporting information will not be considered—judges need detailed information to properly evaluate the
entries. Handwritten entries are discouraged.
To assist you with the nomination process, sample applications are available at by clicking here.
Include applicable information and material that may help strengthen the nominee's credentials as a potential
award winner, such as customer and supervisor comments. Remember, the only information the judges will have on which
to base their decisions is the informa-tion presented with the entry.
Package entries carefully and be sure to mail them with adequate postage. The Roofing Industry Alliance for
Progress will not be responsible for loss of or damage to any submissions.
The 2016-17 program is closed. Details for the 2017-18 program will be available in September 2017.
Judges are recognized professionals within the roofing industry and include a representative mix of contractors,
manufacturers, distributors and suppliers. The only information the judges will have available on which to base their
decisions is the information submitted with each entry.
How the judging works:
Entries are reviewed at Alliance headquarters to confirm eligibility.
Each eligible entry is individually evaluated by the judges.
The highest-ranking entries in each category will be re-evaluated to determine the winner.
Judges' decisions are final, and evaluations of specific entries will remain confidential.
