Writing a good nomination “essay” is critical if you want the nomination to be successful. Here’s an example of a well-written one:

Sherrie Smith has been a major asset to the PowerShell community for a long time. From 2006 to 2009, she hosted one of the first educational PowerShell blogs at SherrieSmithShell.com, writing articles almost every week. She has been active on Twitter from 2008 to at least 2018, monitoring the #PowerShell tag and answering questions. She’s well-known on StackOverflow.com and ServerFault.com as answering PowerShell questions, and has a high reputation score there. From 2010 to 2013, Sherrie ran the Metrocity PowerShell User Group, organizing 3 PowerShell Saturday events during that time. She has appeared at numerous conferences (including Ignite, PSConf.eu, and PowerShell Down Under) to teach PowerShell patterns and practices. Sherrie recently stepped into a leadership role with her company and is no longer able to be as active, but she still uses her large Twitter following to help re-tweet important news and information of interest to the community.
