The Outstanding Service Award will recognize students at Washington Campus Compact member institutions who are engaged in current service projects addressing the critical issue areas identified above.
Nominations of student service leaders are submitted online by individuals, organizations, and institutions, and consist of an online form, stories, photos and videos. Students are encouraged to utilize social media to promote and highlight their work. In addition to the student application, faculty or administrators from their college and community-based organizations where the student serves are asked to submit a letter of recommendation. Parents, classmates and other community members are invited to participate in the process, either by volunteering in the service project, or by voting for their favorite service project through social media. A Selection Committee of statewide policy, nonprofit, business, and community leaders will select the award winners from the pool of applicants. The award will recognize one student from a two-year institution and one student from a four-year institution. Additionally, the student’s institution and community partner will receive recognition and an award as well.
Award Details: Outstanding Service Award winners will receive a $2,500 award and $2,500 will be awarded to both their institution and community partner for current service projects addressing critical issues in Washington.
