All-Star Team Staff Award

Nomination Form


This award honors a team of two to five UW staff members who have worked together as a team and are notable for their collaborative skills and perseverance.


The recipients/team will be given: 

  • $2000 shared between team members (only classified staff members are eligible for the monetary award)

  • Plaque for each team member

This award will be presented by Staff Senate on UW Staff Recognition Day.


To be eligible, the nominees must:

  •  Have completed their probation term prior to January of the nomination year

Nomination Process

Each nomination must be submitted using the online form. If an incomplete form is received prior to the deadline, the nominator will be contacted to complete the form correctly.

Each team of nominees must have a minimum of three separate nominations. Nominations cannot come from a team member.  

After the nomination period closes, the Recognition Committee will examine the potential candidates. The committee chair will ensure that all of the nominations follow the process guidelines and that there are no descriptors used that compromise anonymity. The Recognition Committee, not including the chair, may narrow the choices down to half (or a minimum of four teams) of the original nominee pool by rating each team on a 7-point Likert scale. If the original nominee pool does not exceed four teams, the committee will not screen. The Executive Committee of Staff Senate will select the final award recipients.

Selection Criteria

The selection process will be based on the following information:

  • Notable collaborative skills

  • Perseverance to complete a sizeable task or accomplish a long-term goal
