Outstanding Service Project of the Year
Congratulations to the winners of the 2013 Service Project of the Year, The Emerging Leaders Chili Cook Off, which raised over $800 and proceeds went to to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Final nominees included Campus Activities Board and Kappa Lambda Iota's McKendree
Idol, which has raised over $10,000 since its inception for breast cancer research
and awareness. Another final nominee was Dr. Shelly Lemon's University 101 class,
which rallied together to send care boxes overseas to our troopsand to Gabor Toth,
a McKendree senior who raised funds to deliver loads of athletic equipment to his
home country of Hungary!
The purpose of this award is to recognize either a Registered Student Organization
or an individual student who has created and implemented the most successful service
project of the year. To be considered for this award, the organization or individual
must attach the answers to the questions on the nomination form. The group/individual
may also submit up to five pages of additional documentation, including letters of
support, newsletters, and publicity from programs. The application will be judged
on the level of participation by students in the program, the educational value of
the program to the student who participates, and the impact of the program on the
community. This award may be self-nominated.
