This award is designed to recognize an outstanding member within your organization for all of their individual hard work who embodies the core values of Oregon State University: accountability, diversity, integrity, respect, and social responsibility.

This award is designed to celebrate a student who has been involved in a variety of activities but has not necessarily held formal leadership positions or been in the spotlight. It should recognize a person who rarely receives recognition for their work "behind the scenes" during the academic year. Though officers are acceptable, we ask that you consider someone who may not always be in the spotlight, but still has a remarkable impact on the group's success.

Please note that though the same person may be nominated for both Unsung Hero and Outstanding Student Leader, they can only win one award.
