These awards are an annual celebration of the excellent work Students’ Associations, officers and staff do across Scotland. They are an opportunity to applaud the unsung heroes from the movement, whilst reflecting on the standout stories and achievements of the past year.

We have run them over the last eight years and they are a great opportunity to recognise hard work and excellence by Students’ Associations over the last year. This is done by nominating.

The aim of the game isn’t to work out who’s the best and the awards are most definitely not a competition. They are an opportunity to share best practice, showcase outstanding results and recognise the impact of Students’ Associations and what they do to make a difference to students in their everyday lives.

Nominations close on Monday 4 February 2019 at 5pm, so make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to nominate the people you work with.

This year the categories are:

Campaigns Award

Diversity Award

Education Award

Officer Team of the Year Award

Staff Member of the Year Award

Student of the Year Award

Club or Society of the Year Award

College Students’ Association of the Year

University Students’ Association of the Year

Please view the criteria before submitting a nomination.
