The majority of the awards presented on the night have the same nomination & voting system – anyone can nominate any society or individual (including your own society/yourself), and then each society votes to collectively decide the winner.
Nominations will be open until midday, Friday 7th April, for any student or staff member to submit as many nominations as they wish.
A nomination shortlist for each award is then compiled ready for society voting. Shortlists are created by the VPSA and Activities Manager checking that the nomination is valid – the criteria for validity is whether they feel the details given in the nomination have sufficiently answered the questions asked in the nomination form.
Nomination shortlists will be sent to Society Chairs by Monday 10 April at the very latest for the society to collectively choose who they wish to vote for. We expect being able to send the shortlist earlier than that date. Voting is done using the same method as the SU Officer Elections, where you put in order your preference of clubs/individuals shortlisted for that award.
Societies need to return their votes to Plamena (firstname.lastname@example.org) by midday, Wednesday 19 April.
Society Service Awards
A Society Service Award is for a graduating student in recognition of the time, effort and dedication they have given to a society during their time at the University of Greenwich. All categories of the Societies Service Awards are to recognise where a student has contributed to the betterment of student life through their involvement.
The three levels of Society Service Awards are Commendable, Outstanding, and Significant. Anyone can nomination any society member for any (or all) of the levels, and this is done through online nomination forms.
A panel of SU staff and Officers then look over the nominations, and a decision is made for each nomination which, if any, level of Society Service will be awarded.
The deadline for nominations for Society Service Awards is the same as the deadline for other Societies Awards, midday on Friday 31 March.
