In 2018, all campuses within the NASPA Region IV-W are eligible to nominate their peer educators, programs, and advisors for the Region IV BACCHUS Peer Education Awards. Please take some time to nominate those programs, students, alumni, and advisors that are exceptional. So often, our work is thankless, but now, you have a chance to say thank you. You do not need to be present to win. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Area Consultant Joan Masters. All nominations are due Friday, March 1, 2019.
This award will be given to a program or initiative that has impacted individuals and/or the campus community, effectively involved peer educators, fostered growth of individual peer educators or the group as a whole, created collaboration with other campus groups or organizations, and incorporates creativity and appreciation of diversity. This can be a stand-alone program or a series of events from an awareness week or month.
The Outstanding Alumni Award honors those who have served as peer educators, advisors or BACCHUS Network volunteers in the past. Winners will be selected based on their ongoing contributions to health and safety issues in their local, state or national communities through professional or philanthropic work.
