When submitting nominations, details of specific contributions made should be provided with the reasons for considering them to be particularly meritorious. A biographical summary (biosketch, and/or C.V.), although not essential for the assessment of merit, is required for each individual for citation and award presentation.CNS Membership is not required of the nominee but will be viewed as an asset.

The Award consists of a monetary award, a plaque, one complimentary registration to the CNS-SCN Annual Conference and two tickets to the Awards Banquet where the recipient will be honoured.

Nominations may be made by anyone and are open to all, but preference will be given to members and supporters of CNS. An anonymous committee, appointed by the Canadian Nutrition Society, will recommend the selected recipient of the Earle Willard McHenry Award.
