AWARDS APPLICATION PROCESS:
Step 1: Advisor will nominate the students (for individual awards). Students will complete the application forms and submit by April 9. Advisors (with the exception of the Changemaker Award) are not required to fill out any nomination forms - you will be asked to endorse the submission the students send us online)
Step 2: Applications are reviewed by preliminary judges. Finalists are selected.
Step 3: Finalists will attend Virtual Student Interview Night (May 5)
Step 4. Winners will be announced at ventureON (May 26)
*UPDATE* APPLICATION FORMS: We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience. We are transitioning to an online submission form and are working with our provider to have the set up completed ASAP. This will make it easier for students to submit their applications. We anticipate this will be ready next week.
LEAD ADVISORS: Please review the full award eligibility requirements for individual awards at the link above with your advising team and discuss who you would like to nominate - you can notify your selected students anytime. You are not required to submit a nomination list to JA but you will be asked to endorse the individual students' application once they have submitted online (they will be required to include an advisor email in their application). I will set up an advisor call as soon as the application link is live to go over the details.
ALL STUDENTS: Please review the full award eligibility requirements for group awards at the link above with your team and discuss which group awards you would like to apply for and start planning ahead.
