myActions, the leading student-powered college network for sharing sustainable and socially responsible actions, is proud to announce recipients of the Student Actions Awards for the 2014 Fall Semester. The award honors undergraduate schools for student demonstrated leadership, momentum and impact of green, caring and healthy actions.
“We are proud to shine the spotlight on student actions and student leaders. Throughout the semester students have shared actions in an effort to inspire peers and better understand both personal and collective impact” says Kristine Sturgeon, President of myActions. “It has been a wide range from an everyday action, like recycling at sporting events or helping out at a soup kitchen to epic events like creating public art from red cups after the weekend and organizing community programs.”
myActions has established this award to emphasize the power and momentum which is building with this generation and recognize student driven activation as a complement to the existing awards in the industry for systems, programs and curriculum.
The Student Actions Awards celebrate: student leadership, student activation, initiatives and impact. Across the Fall Semester, over 65,000 positive student actions were shared in an effort to inspire friends and make others aware of the fantastic opportunities to engage on campus.
