2020 Distinguished Quill Award Nominations

As prominent student leaders on campus who do amazing work with your respective organizations, we’d like to take this time to remind you of an amazing opportunity that the university provides.  Every year we host the Distinguished Quill Awards, which is a ceremony that celebrates our students’ accomplishments over the past year.  Awards are given to leaders and organizations that have demonstrated exceptional development and impact to the Mason community.  This is the highest honor student organizations can receive, this includes recognition from top administrators at the university. We will be accepting self-nominations as well as nominations on behalf of other organizations and individuals.  All individuals and organizations who submitted nominations will be recognized at the award ceremony.
