NUS Wales Awards 2016 are now open!
NUS Wales Awards are an annual celebration of the excellent work students’ unions, officers and staff do across Wales. They are an opportunity to applaud the unsung heroes from the movement, whilst reflecting on the standout stories and achievements of the past year.
We have run the awards over the last seven years and it is a great opportunity to recognise hard work and excellence by Student Unions over the last year. This is done by nominating.
The aim of the game isn’t to work out who’s the best and the awards are most definitely not a competition. They are an opportunity to share best practice, showcase outstanding results and recognise the amazing things that Students’ Unions do that make a difference to students in their everyday lives.
Nominations close on the 19th February, so make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to nominate the people you work with. You can nominate on the awards website here.
This year the categories are:
Higher Education Students’ Union Award
Further Education Students’ Union Award
Small and Specialist Students’ Union Award
Student Opportunities Award
Officer Team of the Year Award
You can find more details about the criteria on the awards hub.
The Awards are judged by an experienced panel from across the education sector and beyond and are a great opportunity for your efforts to be to be showcased.
Winners will be announced on the 9th March at the NUS Wales Conference gala dinner, which will be held at the Principality Stadium.
Get in touch with any questions and good luck!
