Award recipients can win statues, certificates or gifts depending on the awards given. The LIFE Awards can be a great way to obtain recognition and can make an impressive addition to any student’s resume or an organization’s list of honors.

All awards will be presented to the winners at the fifth annual LIFE Awards celebration on Thursday, April 14, 2010.  This year’s LIFE Awards are also celebrating the third year of a going green effort, as all of the invitations are now electronic rather than printed paper. This year, all award applications are available solely online and will be submitted and judged electronically as well.

The awards and presentation are organized by Alpha Sigma Phi, Alumni Association, Associated Student Government, Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, Department of Student Life, Golden Key National Honor Society, Graduate Student Government, Office of Multicultural Development, Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost, Omicron Delta Kappa, Adult Focus, and The SOuRCe.

Those interested should go to visit the LIFE Awards website at the following address: www.uakron.edu/studentlife/campusprogramming/lifeawards.dot.  All award applications and recommendations are due no later than 11:59 p.m. to lifeawards@uakron.edu on Sunday March 6, 2011.
