71 nominees announced for Student Impact Awards

Friday, April 2, 2021 71 nominees announced for Student Impact Awards

Stuent Impact Award winners for 2020-21 will announced at a ceremony on April 15.

The names of 29 student organizations and 42 individuals nominated for the 2020–21 Student Impact Awards have been revealed by Student Leadership, Involvement, & Community Engagement.

The winners will be publicly announced at 5 p.m. April 15 during the Student Impact Awards Reception in the Nebraska Union Centennial Room.

Student Impact Awards are presented annually to celebrate the outstanding contributions to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln community by the more than 550 Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) and their leaders.

This year, recognition will be given in 13 categories – two more than in previous years. The ceremony's new awards are Sport Club of the Year and Sport Club Athlete of the Year, which had previously been given at a separate ceremony by the Campus Recreation department.

In a not-so-typical academic year in which RSOs were curtailed by the COVID-19 pandemic and safety protocols, clubs and organizations have remained active and the list of nominees increased over last year.

"To have more nominees this spring speaks to the incredible resiliency and strength of these groups," says Melissa Griffith Phelps, assistant director for student organizations. "The clubs have an important role in helping Huskers build lasting relationships with each other, the campus, and the community."
