What is Student Employee of the Year?
The Student Employee of the Year is a recognition program created for outstanding student employees working for Washington State University. Once per year, supervisors from various on-campus departments can nominate current student employees to be the recipient of the Student Employee of the Year award. The Student Employee of the Year will be recognized through various campus functions.
Who can participate in the Student Employee of the Year Recognition Program?
Supervisors from any WSU campus can nominate a student employee at any degree level. Students must be currently enrolled at WSU and have been employed for at least six months to be considered for the award. Student employees must be earning their paycheck from WSU, and outside organizations are not invited to participate.
How many student employees can an employer nominate?
On-campus supervisors can nominate a maximum of two student employees per functional area of a WSU on-campus department. (For example- University Recreation could nominate two Membership Attendants, two Service Attendants, two Weight Room Attendants, two Custodians, etc).
