Have you or someone you know made a difference on the Florida Southern Campus this year? Have any of your campus organizations hosted some significant events? Then make sure you nominate yourself, your campus organization or someone else for the Student Life Awards by Friday Feb. 28 at 5 p.m.

The Center for Student Involvement is once again honoring organizations and individuals for their accomplishments in the Florida Southern community this school year with the Student Life Awards. There are 11 award categories, five individual awards and six organization awards.

The individual categories are: Advisor of the Year, Student Leader of the Year, Faculty/Staff Volunteer of the Year, Student Volunteer of the Year and the Rising Star Award.

The organization/program award categories are: Outstanding Student Organization of the Year, Community Service Project of the Year, Campus Event of the Year, Philanthropic Event of the Year, Diversity Initiative of the Year and SAGA Event of the Year.

Although you must be a current Florida Southern student or faculty member to nominate someone for the awards, recipients do not necessarily have to be a current student or faculty member. For example, the Advisor of the Year Award may go to a campus organization advisor who is not currently a member of the FSC faculty.

After the applications and nominations are submitted, a faculty and staff committee will meet to review the submissions. After a vote by the committee, the winners will then be chosen.

The award recipients will be given their awards at the Honors Award Celebration from 6 to 8 p.m. on April 2 in Annie Pfeiffer Chapel.

To nominate and apply for any of the honors awards, you must go on to MocSync, previously known as OrgSync.

On MocSync, you can go to either the FSC Student Government Association page or the FSC Center for Student Involvement page. Click on the forms tab and the 11 categories should each be shown as a separate form.

Students, after filling out the form for the category of their choosing, must ake sure to submit the form by clicking the submit button on the bottom of the page.

After that all they have to do is attend the award celebration on April 2 to see if themselves or their organization has won an award.

“I am really excited for the Student Life Awards this year. I think our club has made an impact in confronting adversity and I hope we can be recognized for our efforts by receiving one of the awards this year,” Rebecca Schild, President of the Jewish Association, said.

Amanda Blount, Director for the Center of Student Involvement, urges students to “Apply today! We have not received very many nominations yet, so I hope more people will apply as soon as possible.”
