Student Rep Awards

We are delighted to announce all of the nominations for this year's Student Rep Awards! This year we received a record breaking 124 nominations for the Student Rep Awards. Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate. 

Due to ongoing Covid-19 lockdown, we won’t be able to host the usual awards ceremony in Venue as normal. Instead, we’ll be inviting the shortlisted candidates (who will be selected from the full list of nominees below) to attend an online ceremony on Tuesday 12 May. We’ll announce the winners on social media after the ceremony and post the video of the ceremony online after it’s finished for you all to watch.
