2023 Stars of Life Nominations are CLOSED.

Please read all instructions below before beginning the registration process.
All details for each nominee and host are required during the initial submission.


Online Nomination & Registration Process

The Stars of Life online registration process is completed by one person, the company contact, for all attendees from your ambulance service. All fields are required, INCLUDING HEADSHOT FOR STARS, and the form cannot save partially completed registrations. AAA strongly recommends assembling all materials for each Star, Host, and Guest before beginning online registration.

For each Star, you will need:

  • Name and job title as they should appear on the website and in print recognition
  • Email address (MUST BE UNIQUE—use of a host’s email will overwrite the host’s account. If no email exists for your star, please invent one ending @mailinator.com.)
  • All zip codes for which you’d like Hill meetings scheduled
  • A brief bio and details about why they are being nominated for Stars of Life. Need help writing this? Download our Stars bio examples!
  • A high-resolution headshot photo that is AT LEAST 500x500px (Hint: Tips for taking great head shot pictures on your phone.)
  • Names and relationships of guests attending with your Stars. Please also be prepared to note which guests are young children.

For each Host and Guest, you will need:

  • Name
  • Job title
  • Email address (MUST BE UNIQUE, even for children—use of another person’s email will overwrite the host’s account. If no email exists or is unknown, please invent one ending @mailinator.com.)
  • Names and relationships of guests attending. Please also be prepared to note which, if any, guests are young children.

Payment Options

After entering all Star, Host, and Guest information, you will have the option to remit payment via credit card onscreen, or to view a printable invoice to mail in with your check.
