Eligible Students:
All students employed in Student Worker or Work Study positions. Graduate assistants and teaching assistants are not eligible.

Students must have been employed for a minimum of 6 months between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014 (anticipated).

Nomination Form

Selection Criteria
Students will be evaluated on the following qualities:

  1. Dedication and professionalism
  2. Responsibility/reliability
  3. Initiative/creativity
  4. Uniqueness of the student employee’s contribution.
(In case of a tie, uniqueness of contribution will be the deciding factor.)

Please address all 4 criteria specifically in your nomination letter so that the selection committee can more effectively compare the candidates.

The nomination letters will be read and evaluated by a committee made up of campus staff who deal with student employees in one way or another. No person working with any of the nominated students will be on the committee. The committee members will each evaluate the nomination letters and assign them points according to the criteria listed above. The committee will then meet to discuss their evaluations of the nominating letters and review their votes to choose the Student Employee of the Year. In case of a tie, the criteria of “uniqueness of the student employee’s contribution” will be the deciding factor in the committee’s final vote.

The student chosen as the Student Employee of the Year will receive a check for $100 from the UNO Alumni Association.

The Student Employment Reception will be held on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at 3:00 pm in the Milo Bail Student Center Ballroom. The event is open to the entire campus community.
