In a year that has been far from normal for us, it's more important than ever to recognise all your hard work and achievements. The Awards may seem a bit different, but we wanted to shift the focus to celebrating those individuals and groups who kept their communities connected, and highlight the innovation and creativity of student activities this year. 


The Awards ceremonies (10th June) will be a huge celebration of you, and showcase the amazing things you've put on this year. Most importantly, anyone in your club or society can submit a nomination!
