Nomination Procedures and Award Packet


Do You Know a Nanny Who Is Outstanding?

You are invited to have a positive, lasting impact on the nanny’s career by nominating her or him for the 2014 Nanny of the Year™ (NOTY™) award. The NOTY™ award is presented annually by the International Nanny Association (INA) to recognize the personal achievements of a working nanny.

The NOTY™ Award Summary

Who: Individuals eligible for nomination must be currently employed full time as a nanny or specialty nanny (newborn care specialist, traveling nanny, governess or temporary nanny). The nanny selected will be a professional caregiver who is a genuine advocate for children and a person who has enriched the lives of the children in his or her care. INA NOTY™ nominees must be a current member of INA. If a nominee is not a current member of INA, they must join at the time they submit their INA NOTY™ materials for consideration by the Selection Committee.

What: The nanny selected will be presented with the NOTY™ honor during INA’s upcoming annual conference. The individual selected will serve as an example of the best kind of nanny and will represent a positive role model for the in-home child care industry and our association.

When: Your application must be post marked no later than December 31, 2013 and must include four exact copies of the complete portfolio. The individual selected will be honored during INA’s 29th annual conference on March 27th-30th during the Nanny of the Year™ luncheon.

Where: Hilton Los Angeles Airport. Los Angeles, CA
