2023-2024 SLA nominations are now closed.

Thanks to all who submitted nominations! Invitations to attend the 2024 Student Leadership Awards will be extended in early April. We look forward to celebrating with all our nominees and winners this year on April 18th in the Student Commons!

  1. 1

    Who can submit a nomination?

    Any student, staff, or faculty member can nominate an individual or organization for an award.

  2. 2

    How do I submit a nomination?

    Head to our Award Descriptions page to view the available awards. Once you've selected the award you want to submit a nomination for, click on the title of the award and that will send you to the submission form.

  3. 3

    Can I nominate myself or my organization?

    YES! Self-nominations are encouraged and in the case of certain awards like the VCU Alumni Award, required.

  4. 4

    Do more nominations equal a better chance at winning?

    Not necessarily! The quality of the nomination and the thoughtfulness behind it is the biggest factor in selecting award winners. In other words multiple nominations don't guarantee wins.

    Can I nominate for multiple awards?

    Absolutely! Just make sure to write a nomination that is specific to the award you are nominating for.

  6. 6

    What information do I need to submit a nomination?

    Make sure you have the correct name(s) and VCU email(s) for the nominee, and be prepared to submit a response to an award-specific question or prompt.

    When are award winners announced?

    Award winners are announced during the Student Leadership Awards ceremony on April 20th. More information will be coming soon about this event.
