Contribution to Student Community

These awards are open to all students. They celebrate those students who have gone above and beyond to bring a positive contribution to the student Community. This can be all the way from organising a project that benefited others, or being a part of a community or collective for change.

If you can think of anyone who you believe has made a positive contribution to the Student Community at UEA, we want you to celebrate their success!

This criteria includes Liberation, Diversity, Post Graduate and Campaign awards; for the full list please view the table below.

Student Volunteer Awards:

These awards are for those students who have volunteered their time to bring forward a positive impact to their cause. Anyone who has been involved within a volunteering programme such as.. EventSU, DSD ambassadors, BuddySU, or any Society or Club Committee member is eligible for this award.

These Awards recognise those who put their cause before themselves. For example a Society committee member who has ensured there are a variety of social activities for their members, or a Buddy volunteer who's impact was so big that they were able to change a students University experience. 

If you can think of anyone who has given up their time to help a project, event, group, committee or whatever it may be, we want you to celebrate them!
