It’s that time of year again, iron your best shirt, get your best dress out, it's time to reflect and celebrate what an amazing year it has been at the Students’ Union with the UWLSU awards sponsored by Bacardi. This year's theme is black and gold, think the Oscars but UWL style.
Each year UWLSU holds an annual awards ceremony to celebrate and look back on all of the amazing achievements of the year. For some of you, this is the final goodbye to friends, peers and team-mates. For others it's a chance to say thank you to those that have, and continue to inspire you.
The awards are split into the following categories:
Do you know someone that deserves special recognition? Are you part of a group, team or society that has exceeded expectation or made a real difference to your University experience?
Make sure you nominate who you think is deserving and celebrate the year in style!
