UW Alumni Association

Four New Alumni Awards


The UW Alumni Association proudly recognizes achievements of alumni and friends by presenting awards each year. These honorees include individuals who support the state of Wyoming and its communities, exhibit exceptional professional achievements, and display leadership and volunteerism. They are engaged in supporting the University of Wyoming Alumni Association and the University of Wyoming. The nominee must be able to participate in person at the Awards Recognition Ceremony (no posthumous nominations).

The Award Committee makes its decision based on nominations received by February 28th of every year.  Nominations received after that time will be considered for the following year.
