Nomination forms are available from the high school office at Ashland High School.
Nominations may be submitted at any time, in care of the Ashland High School principal, the Power Jay Activities Club president or the Ashland High School Alumni president. Nominations will not be made public. The Selection Committee will meet as necessary to consider the nominees. Exact deadlines and meeting dates will be determined by the committee each year.

Examples of criteria for nomination include state championships, All-American status, national or international acclaim, etc.
A minimum of two-thirds affirmative votes from the Selection Committee is required for induction.
In the event of a large number of nominees and widespread balloting in which no one receives the minimum two-thirds affirmative votes, the Selection Committee is authorized, at its discretion, to conduct preliminary balloting to reduce the number of nominees it deems workable or manageable for further discussion. In the preliminary balloting, the pool of nominees may be narrowed, but not elected into the Hall of Fame. From that point on, subsequent balloting should be aimed at meeting the two-thirds vote criteria.
In no case is the selection committee obligated to induct any nominees.
All voting will be done by secret ballot, with the Power Jay Activities Club president tabulating the votes.
The Selection Committee will include a maximum of 9 or a minimum of 5 voting members. A quorum for conducting business will consist of 5 or more members of the Selection Committee.
