How Shortlisting works: 

During Feburary students will be able to nominate their friend, comittee member, volunteers and coaches for a wide variety of awards. This will be done by way of an online form. After the deadline has passed the Student Activity Committee will meet and select shortlistiing and winners. The success of your nominee is based on the qulaity of your nomination as it is likley that the SAC will have very difficult comparisons to make.
