Student Life and Leadership

SOLE Awards

What are SOLE Awards?

SOLE Awards is a special event put on by the Student Organizations & Leadership Education (SOLE) department in the Spring semester of every year to recognize all the hard work student organizations have put in throughout the year. Student organizations nominate candidates for an opportunity to win money towards the entire organization and/or directly to individual recipients.


Awards

  • Student Organization of the Year

    The Outstanding Student Organization award was developed to recognize the outstanding role student organizations play in both campus and community life. Members, advisors and other officers are invited to nominate their club. The winning club will be presented a $500 check to commemorate this achievement.

  • Outstanding Student Organization Leader

    The Outstanding Student Organization Leader award was developed to recognize the critical role student leaders play in their service to their members, campus and Chico community. Members, advisors and other officers are invited to nominate an outstanding student leader from their club. The recipient of this award will be presented a $500 check to commemorate their achievement.

  • Rick Rees Unsung Hero

    Change and new ideas do not always commence from the formalized leader positions in an organization. Sometimes positive actions begin with a general member who is not your traditional leader. The Rick Rees "Unsung Hero" Award is designed to recognize a student who:

    • Positively impacted the student organization and/or the Chico State community
    • Creates behind-the-scenes change that improved the student organization
    • Was a mentor and a leader to those in the organization, even if informally
    • Has gone above and beyond their duties with the club without receiving or asking for direction or compensation
  • Outstanding Event/Program of the Year

    Did your club bring in an incredible speaker? Put on a fantastic workshop? Organize an exceptional fundraiser? Host an amazing experience? This is your chance to brag and submit your nomination for the Outstanding Event/Program of the Year!

  • Outstanding Advisor

    The Advisor award was developed to recognize the crucial role that advisors play in their service to the club, its members, campus and Chico community. Club officers and members are invited to nominate an outstanding advisor from their club.

Thank you for attending the 2022 SOLE Awards. We look forward to seeing you next year!
