(UPDATE: Some great new entries are coming, especially in the social media, grassroots advocate and young defenders category. I hope you check out all the nominees.

( I will open up some categories to voting by you, so stay tuned!)

It is that time of year again where I ask you for nominations for the annual Hasby Awards,  the best examples of pro-Israel advocacy for the year.

Below you will find the categories of awards for this year. You can add your own nominees or you can second the ones that are listed in the comments. I have pre-populated nominees from those who had been seconded last year that still apply, but you can nominate additional ones. There is no need to second nominees that have already been seconded. (No nominations or seconds from Twitter or email, they must be placed in the comments.)

As in previous years, no one gets awarded twice for the same category so I list the previous winners.

Some winners are decided by me and others will be based on surveys.. The awards will be given out in January or perhaps February.  (If any organization wants to host an actual awards ceremony, let me know!)
