Service is the first priority.  The sponsoring organizations believe that public service for which no compensation is given is the most important attribute of the Kennewick Man and Woman of the Year. However, professional merit and activities will be considered.
Majority of service to benefit citizens of Kennewick. There is no requirement that the nominee give service exclusively in the City of Kennewick, just that the majority of the community service benefit the citizens of Kennewick. The nominee must, however, either live or work in the City of Kennewick. 

Nominations for the 2016 Kennewick Man & Woman of the Year will be open in October.
