The Riley Sibling STAR is a way to recognize the siblings of seriously and/or chronically ill children, and their role in their sibling’s care.


Intended Recipients: This award is intended for the sibling of a current inpatient (at time of nomination). Nominees should stand out in some way from other siblings in similar circumstances. This can be a single gesture, showing of compassion, kindness, or any other act that can be considered “above & beyond” what is typically expected. There is no single thing that will qualify a recipient… this award is simply a way to recognize those who might stand out during a time of adversity. Please note that this award is not a “need based” award, and financial or other need should not factor into nomination process.


Eligibility: Any sibling, ages 3-17, of a current (at time of nomination) inpatient at Riley Hospital for Children are eligible for nomination. Permission must be obtained from child’s parent in order to nominate. Individual nominating must be a current staff member at Riley Hospital for Children, or the Riley Children’s Foundation.

Nomination Process: Using one of the form types above, nominations may be made at any time via the online submission form below or email address provided. Nominations will be considered monthly, and any eligible nomination submitted during that month will be considered. Award recipients will be determined by a Nathan’s Playroom selection committee by the 15th day of the following month. Awards for nominees selected will be shipped by the end of that same month.
