Why should I attend the Awards Banquet on April 29th?

It’s a great opportunity to earn funding for your organization through monetary awards, gain recognition for your organization’s work, learn about the events in your peer’s organizations, hear from insightful speakers, take photos with your leadership team, and get a delicious free dinner!

Do I need to apply for an award in order to attend the Banquet?

No. Although it is highly encouraged to apply for awards, it is not required to attend the banquet.

I nominated a member, are they allowed to come to the Banquet?

Yes! After our awards committee reviews the nominations for the Outstanding Member Award, they will select finalists. The number of finalists is dependent on the number of applications. These finalists will be contacted by WESC with RSVP information, and they will be able to attend along with their organization’s leaders.

Our organization is under the advisement of multiple staff members/professors, can all of them come?

No. In order to adhere to the maximum capacity of the venue, please only invite one advisor.

How do the Individual Awards work?

There are three individual awards: Outstanding member, leader, and advisor. There are no self nominations allowed for these awards but all members of the organization are able to nominate their peers/advisors. For example, as an organization leader you could nominate a fellow leader in your organization, a member of your organization, or your advisor.

I’m an advisor. Can I apply for an award on behalf of the organization I advise?

Yes, advisors can apply for awards except for the Outstanding Advisor Award since no self nominations are allowed.
