  3. Online electronic SUN Award certificate via e-mail and the ability of the submitter to also print the completed certificate and present it to the recipient face-to-face.

These certificates invite a personalized description of the act being commended and serve as a remembrance of the thoughtful and creative ways we work together to accomplish our shared goals. Simply describe what the recipient did that warrants recognition on the form.
