Further things to consider when writing congratulation letters to acquaintances

Congratulation Letters

Congratulation letters are letters written to praise others for their achievements or to express good wishes on a special occasion. These letters are a great gesture to maintaining professional and personal relationships. There are many situations you may find necessary for you to congratulate someone. Whether it is a colleague who has made a new business connection, a friend who is getting engaged, or a subordinate who has been promoted, a congratulations letter will be a great and classy way to show that you are sincerely happy for them. Congratulation letters show others that you see their efforts and that you are proud of their achievements.

Congratulation letters are direct and simple and should be written as soon as possible after the achievement. State the specific event that has moved you into writing this letter. Express praise of the achievement. Keep your letter short and clear and avoid adding unnecessary details. Be honest and avoid exaggerating your congratulatory words. Express your confidence in the recipient's future success. If you are congratulating couples for their marriage, include the best qualities that make them a good couple and wish them a happy married life. End the letter with a congratulatory note.

Letters to Acquaintances

Letters to acquaintances are letters you write to people that you know slightly, but who are not close friends. An acquaintance could be a colleague at work but whom you do not interact with on a regular basis, a person you went to school with but know little about him/her, or your Facebook contacts whom you interact with on a minor level. You could write a letter to this person to ask for a favor, invite him/her to a social event, or just pass some information. Although most people would opt for a social media message or text, a well-drafted letter will make the recipient see the seriousness of the matter and feel obliged to return the favor.

The best letters to acquaintances are warm, sweet, and friendly. Begin the letter with a proper salutation, based on your relationship with the recipient. State the purpose of the letter and be clear about what you want from the recipient. If you are asking him/her to do something for you, for instance, mention why you think he/she is the best person to get it done. Make the letter short and only provide the necessary details. Conclude on a positive note.

Sample Letter of Congratulations

Best Formal Sample Congratulations Letter for Winning an Award

Wining an award is indeed a remarkable achievement. When someone wins an award in some competition or when he/she is felicitated for some noteworthy work, you as a sensitive person must take a note of it.

I think a congratulations letter written to the winner is a nice way to extend your wishes to him/her. Such a letter proves to be an encouragement to the winner for future achievements.

Many times social organizations or the NGOs write a congratulations letter to recognize the achievement of a person. The companies and the institutions too have to write congratulations letters to the staff members or the celebrated person achieving something special.

Such letters are formal or professional congratulations letters. I cannot say there is a fixed format for such a letters. However, such letters are a bit more difficult to write than the informal family letters.

The selection of words is very important here as you have to use formal and professional language throughout the letter.

Such letters should short. The tone should be pleasant. The intent of the letter will be to congratulate the winner on his achievement and extend wishes for his/her future. You are supposed to come to the point at the outset.

Suppose you as a president of some social organization are writing a congratulations letter to a veteran social worker who has recent won an award for his exemplary work for society. Here the recipient is not your friend or relative.

Since you are writing to an elderly person, your respect for the recipient should be evident in the letter.

Here follows a sample of a formal congratulations letter written to a renowned social worker on his winning the 'Beacon Light Award' for the year 2011 for his selfless service to society. This is just a format and not the only way to write such a letter.

Dear Dr. Jones-Hendrickson:

Congratulations on this your special Service Awards Day at UVI. Of course, you are listed in this booklet as being retired; however, we know differently – Yes, you have retired from UVI, but because of your experience, expertise and foresight in the field of Economics, you have been selected for a very astute position, i.e. to re-tire (reform) the VI economy!

For thirty-eight (38) years, you have proudly, freely, and happily served the University of the Virgin Islands in various capacities, with your last position being at the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS), where you served as the Dean; and did so, with class!  Your door and your ear, were always open to anyone who needed to speak with you; and you always gave them your undivided attention. All facets of your faculty and staff’s well-being were of utmost importance to you, and you always encouraged us to improve and take care of ourselves. Whatever problems were brought to you, were solved or resolved in the best possible manner.

I had the distinct pleasure of working as your Administrative Assistant during my last two years at UVI.  During this time, I saw first-hand, the passion and devotion you have for all that you do; your admirable interaction with students – always willing to help, advise, encourage, and mentor – oftentimes this was just what the students needed to give them that much-needed nudge to focus, stay on the path, and finish what they started.  It did not matter the time of day, nor the venue – if someone needed to speak with you, your attention was given to them. Your easy and approachable demeanor, kind words and sense of humor, are the vital spices which draw people to you for assistance. In the words of Napoléon Bonaparte, “A leader is a dealer in hope,” and therefore, you have honorably earned the Great Leader Badge.

You will be missed at UVI, but I am thankful for the opportunity to continue working with you, until you are really ready for retirement!

Congratulations to Dr Simon Jones-Hendrickson for his sterling contribution in the fields of academia and economic development at the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI). You have made an impact, not only at the University of the Virgin Islands, but throughout the entire Eastern Caribbean and the world in general by enriching the minds and lives of all those students whom you have mentored over the last 38 years, and sharing your knowledge through the numerous books you have published. We admire you for your sterling qualities of commitment, dedication, exemplary reputation, selfless service and charitable giving of your time and resources. We are happy to see the UVI rise to acknowledge and show appreciation for your tremendous contribution over the last 38 years.  Congratulations on a well-deserved honor. God bless you always.

From: Victor & Sheila Williams, St. Kitts

To my father- Simon B. Jones-Hendrickson:

To begin this tribute for my fathers's thirty-eight years of dedicated service. I must clarify what I mean by the word Father. 

I had a true father. He worked together with my Mother, his wife of thirty-eight years to nurture my brother and me into the adults we have become.  

My father is kind, clever, funny and fun. My Dad is noble and smart. He has a way with words which has been clearly manifested in his over 15 books of fiction, non-fiction and poetry.  

He made sure that I knew that I was loved and worthy of being loved. Just this act alone gave me a foundation for self-worth that many of my friends never had because they didn't have my father. It is one thing to procreate. But when you invest, and that's exactly what it is an investment in your children and your marriage, you produce dividends that ripple outside of the family unit. I remember when I graduated from college, I was proud that I had accomplished that educational step. But it was much more important to see how my father was beaming! Having been the first person to graduated from college in his family, that moment was much more significant. 

For that moment and countless others I say a Thank you.

Thank you for being a man.

A man I could be proud of.

Thank you for teaching me it's ok to be smart. 

Thank you for showing me it's ok to have pride in your appearance.

Thank you for teaching me pride in my country.

Thank you for loving and respecting my Mom.

Thank you for teaching me it's ok to be me!

But enough about me. 

My Dad is my hero because he demonstrates you can get what you desire. With positive thinking, determination and hard work, you can have what you want.

His deep commitment to his family has only made his ability to care for others grow. He is selfless in his contributions to UVI. Whether it was in scholarships or mentoring a student. 

His commitment didn't stop him from doing what he loved inside and outside of the classroom. 

Not a day passes that I don't come in contact with someone that my Dad touched with his teaching, lecturing or mentoring. I can't think of a person that has done more for the University  of the Virgin Islands. 

And with that, I say Thank you.  

Nesha Christian-Hendrickson
