Conference Awards

The purpose of SBSLC is to inspire and equip student leaders to make a positive difference on their respective campuses, communities, or organizations. The 2018 SBSLC Executive Staff aspires to begin a new tradition of recognizing SBSLC participants (individuals and groups) who have applied the information and tools learned at SBSLC to create positive change. This year, three (3) Student Spotlight recipients will be formally recognized at SBSLC for their exceptional leadership and commitment to the ideals of SBSLC in their respective communities. We will recognize one individual, one group/organization, and one event/program. Applicants must have attended at least one previous SBSLC and be registered for the conference by the time of application. Student Spotlight recipients will have their bios, pictures, and/or videos displayed on the SBSLC website. The three recipients will also be recognized during the SBSLC Closing Banquet.
