How do the 'You're Awesome!' Awards work?
The 'You're Awesome!' Awards are a Students’ Union initiative that allows students to nominate any staff member who has made a positive difference to their student experience.
What are the categories for nomination?
These awards are really simple – there are no specific categories, you just nominate any member of staff for being awesome!
Who can be nominated?
Any member of University or Students’ Union staff can be nominated, from academics, technicians, UnoBus drivers to staff who work in the cafes and restaurants on campus. All that matters is that they are Awesome!
How do I nominate a staff member for a “You’re Awesome!” award?
You can nominate a staff member by filling in the online nomination form.
There is no limit to the number of awards we can give out as we want to celebrate as many awesome people as possible. When submitting your nomination, please give as much detail as possible as we like to share the reasons for their awards with the winners.
When can i nominate someone?
Nominations open at Fresher’s and are open all year around.
How are the 'You're Awesome!' Awards presented?
Representatives of the SU will deliver the award to the awesome person. We like to surprise the winners when they least expect it by visiting them in a lecturer, meeting in their place of work or even on their bus (don’t worry, we make sure we don’t disrupt any learning). We work with their line manager to ensure that they are also there to celebrate their colleagues. We like to take as many photographs and film as many awards as we can so we can post them on our hall of fame!
What does the 'You're Awesome!' Award winner receive?
Winners will get a certificate and a You’re Awesome Awards mug. We will also provide the winners with the reason why they have been nominated. The winners will also feature in the You’re Awesome Hall of Fame.
