Compact Spirit Sighting nominations should follow these principles:
- Spirit Sightings should focus on a particular instance (or sighting) where the nominee went “above and beyond to reach the best solution to ensure public safety.”
- Nominations should be made by a single individual or entity (state, compact office or county).
- The exception to principles 1 and 2 are situations where a standing body (e.g. state councils) decides that an individual is worthy of general recognition.
