Since its inception the award has evolved to its present form via the Bat Workers Forum, and following suggestions from nominees. BCT’s role is only to administer the award, by requesting nominations, overseeing the voting process and presenting the award, but these roles are purely administrative. BCT does not set conditions of who can be nominated, or police the nominations, as they are from those who have been inspired or enthused, and the purpose of the award is to celebrate these people.
BCT does not restrict who can vote for the award but shares the nominations document with bat groups, on the BCT website, in e-bulletins and via social media. Anyone voting will have been reached in some way, directly by their interactions with the nominee and/or by reading the nominations document, sufficiently for them to submit a vote for that person.
If you have any questions about the Pete Guest Award, the nomination and/or voting processes please email the Bat Groups Officer: Abby Packham.
