Nomination Countdown

Five more days left to nominate an exceptional University of Denver student for the Student Employee of the Year contest. The winner will receive a personalized DU hockey jersey, recognition at our annual ice cream social, and the chance to compete in a national contest that carries a $1,000 reward.

Thank you to participants in today's Nomination Writing Workshop, held in partnership with the DU Writing Center. For nominators who couldn't make it to workshop, here are a few tips from the Writing Center's Eliana Schonberg and Geoffrey Bateman:
  • Think about why you are nominating this student. What sets him or her apart from present and past co-workers and peers?
  • Generate a list of specific examples that illustrate why this employee deserves recognition.
  • Explain how this employee has made your life easier.
  • Review the attributes of past Student Employee of the Year winners (here and here). 
Nomination forms for the competition can be accessed here and should be sent to by Feb. 15. DU staff and faculty can schedule an individual appointment at the Writing Center for guidance during the nomination writing process.
