Student Employee of the Year
The Wichita State University Student Employee of the Year Award is sponsored by the Student Government Association and recognizes the contributions of student employees to the university community and honors their efforts. University employees may nominate a Wichita State student employee who is enrolled in a Wichita State University degree program at least half time and has completed or expects to complete, at least three months full time or six months part time employment during this academic year, July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021. Hourly, work-study and salaried student employees are eligible.
Departments can nominate a maximum of two student employees. Supervisors are asked to submit a nomination form along with a letter of recommendation commenting on the student’s reliability, initiative, quality of work, leadership skills, and the impact made on their department.
Nominations are read by a panel of judges comprised of a cross-section of staff and community members from the Wichita State University community. Judges rank the nominations, using the attributes listed above as a guide, and the winners are determined by the judges’ scores. Awards are given to an Undergraduate and a Graduate Student Employee of the Year and both winners will be recognized at the annual Student Government Association Banquet and Awards Ceremony and will each receive a $500 scholarship and a plaque,
