LEAD Awards nominations

Leadership and Engagement Achievements of Distinction, or LEAD Awards, recognize students, student organizations, programs, and events in the Division of Student Affairs. This collaborative awards ceremony showcases leadership, service, followership, collaboration, and more. The Awards are geared towards celebrating the outstanding efforts on our campus to promote leadership and engagement.

LEAD Awards are given to Cal Poly students or student organizations based on three categories:

  • Leadership in Action
  • Collaboration
  • Program or Event of Distinction

Students can nominate themselves or others and you can submit nominees for as many of the categories as you like. Additionally, nominations can be submitted for the Allyship Award which recognizes faculty/staff or offices/departments at Cal Poly who are allies for students, programs or events, organizations, and beyond.

Nominations for the 2019-2020 LEAD Awards are open through Monday May 11, 2020 at 9:00am. All nominees will be recognized in the presentation and 2-4 nominees will be chosen in each category to win the overall award.
