Nominations for the 2017 Annual Awards are now closed. Thank you to all who took the time to recognize the individuals who went the extra mile this year. We will announce the award winners at our annual awards dinner during our 2017 Spring General Assembly at Breezy Point Resort on Saturday, April 22.
- Student Leader of the Year
Student leaders come from all different backgrounds and carry so many diverse stories. A Student Leader of the Year is one who has excelled both academically, in the association, and in their community. This individual should be someone who has risen above all other students both in their actions and their attitude to bring their campus, the association, and the community together as well as give back to each of these communities.
- Governing Council Member of the Year
A Governing Council Member of the Year displays many great qualities within the association. They have exemplified the ideals of the organization, built relationship and effective teams within their region and have gone above their call to serve our students.
- Platform Representative of the Year
A Platform Committee Member of the Year is seen to display many qualities related to legislation in the association. However, one that has dedicated their time and effort to research and develop a working knowledge of the issues facing our students, our legislative agenda and then educate the students of their region displays qualities worthy of a nomination.
- Student Senate of the Year
Each year we honor one senate for taking their work above and beyond the call of duty. Past winners have had significant impact on their communities and campuses. In many cases, they have changed the lives of countless amounts of students for the better.
- Minnesota State Committee Member of the Year
Minnesota State committees are some of the most important venues for change across the state. Students who serve on these committees are essential in ensuring students have a voice on a variety of topics. Nominees should be students who have served or are serving on a Minnesota State committee this year.
