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 by email at Nominations@NathansPlayroom.org. 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.
