This award is given to the person who [fill in requirement/achievements here] over the last year.

Such performance is well above and beyond the call of duty, and today we rightly recognize and honor that service.

Not only did this up-beat attitude come through in his/her finished work, but it also helped and uplifted everyone else involved. For example, [insert anecdote demonstrating above qualities in action]. That is but a single example of what [name of honoree] brings through the front door every day. That consistency, that refusal to give in in the face of adversity
