Request a Proclamation
Thank you for your interest in obtaining a proclamation from Governor Sisolak’s office. Throughout Nevada’s history, Governors have been pleased to provide proclamations declaring the importance of certain dates and observances. In most instances, proclamations are requested to declare selected public observances as an important part of Nevada’s shared history. If you would like to request a proclamation, please complete the form below and include suggested language.
Please note: proclamation requests must be received at least four weeks in advance. Some requests may be addressed through a special certificate or letter of greeting, rather than a gubernatorial proclamation. Before submitting your request, please review the guidelines below:
- All Proclamation requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and the Governor’s Office reserves the right to deny any request for any reason or make exceptions.
- Proclamations recognize a day, week or month.
- Proclamations are honorary public service documents and are not legally binding.
- Proclamations are not issued to honor a specific organization or group.
- Proclamations are not issued to honor an individual person, nor are they issued for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, conferences or graduations. Certificates and letters are available upon request for these types of events.
- Proclamations are issued for one period of time only. For example, if “Family Gardening Day” is proclaimed on January 1, then “Family Gardening Week” or “Family Gardening Month” will not be proclaimed later in the year. Nevada organizations are encouraged to coordinate their efforts with other similar groups and organizations before contacting the Governor’s Office. Organizations are also encouraged to request Proclamations that coincide with national or state-designated dates.
- Proclamation requests must be made in writing and can be submitted by a Nevada resident via the web form below or by mail using the addresses on the contact page. Requests must include a contact person’s first and last name, complete mailing address and telephone number.
- Proclamation requests must include proposed text, including four to six “Whereas” clauses.
- Proclamation requests must be submitted at least four weeks in advance of the date to be recognized.
- Draft language may be modified or rewritten at the discretion of the Governor’s Office.
