RSO Awards of Excellence Nominations

The Campus Activities Center will accept nominations in each of the categories listed below. The open nomination period is Monday, January 22nd through Friday, April 6th.  Nominations are accepted online via UW Connect (the links are located below to each nomination form for each individual award). Nominations will be accepted from the following individuals: officers, members, advisors, and other students/faculty/staff whom have worked with the specific RSOs they are nominating. Nominators may nominate multiple groups for multiple awards.

UW Connect

Why submit a nomination? Recognized Student Organizations (RSO) and student leaders have a significant impact on the University of Wyoming. The 250+ organizations provide outlets for students to get involved, make friends, and network. They host hundreds of events on and off campus, attend conferences that enhance their professional development, and participate in service activities that impact the University and local community. These reasons alone are enough to recognize these groups and their accomplishments, but there are also monetary incentives for RSOs associated with some of the awards listed below. 

We hope you will join us for the RSO Awards of Excellence Banquet on Monday, April 23rd at 6:30 p.m. in the Union Ballroom

For any questions, email cac@uwyo.edu or rsohelp@uwyo.edu.
