Student Choice Awards


Student Choice Awards Ceremony

The Student Choice Awards honors the accomplishments and recognizes contributions of the most dedicated student leaders within the NIU community. You have the ability to nominate other students and yourself to be considered for an award. This awards ceremony is a great opportunity for you to interact with some of the emerging leaders and most notable organizations on campus.

All nominated individuals or organizations will be included in the ballot, which will be sent out to all nominees after the ballots have been counted. As an honoree, you have the intent to set values for not only yourself, but be an example to others around you, see the bigger picture and strive for a better NIU.


Each category has various awards for which you can apply or nominate someone. Log in to Huskie Link (using your Z-ID and password) for more information about the criteria for each award.
