Union Awards 2019 

Awards & Criteria

 

It's time for you to have a say on those student groups and students who have made your time at LSBU amazing! For a majority of the awards, we need your voice through nominations which will then be shortlisted by a panel made up of staff, full and part time officers. Therefore we need your nominations to give as much detail as possible to make them jump out in the shortlisting process. 

No matter what, we need your support through submitting your nomination to our panels.
