Award Nomination Hints

In order to create a successful award nomination, please consider the following:

  • Answer each question! 
  • Submit the nomination before the deadline.
  • Be specific in your answers.  Giving concrete examples may help explain your point more thoroughly.
  • Assume that the award judges are not familiar with your organization; therefore, supply background information if needed.
  • Look at the award criteria and make sure to address those points within the essay questions.  Judges will be making decisions based on that criteria.
  • If you are unsure, please ask!  Student Activities Office staff are not involved in the judging process so we would be happy to help.  Please contact us at

Good luck with your nomination and thank you for taking the time to recognize the contributions our student organizations make to Creighton and the community.
