Hampshire thrives on the passion, energy, dedication, and determination of our students. The Ingenuity Awards honor students who have made a significant contribution to our community.
The Ingenuity Awards for the academic year of 2017-2018 will be announced on April 19, 2017.
Any currently enrolled student may be considered a candidate to receive the Ingenuity Award. Students who won the award in 2017 will not be eligible to win again until 2019, allowing other students an opportunity to be recognized. (A list of those honored in 2017 is available on our website at https://www.hampshire.edu/cla/2017-ingenuity-award-recipients.) We are seeking nominees who have demonstrated outstanding initiative and/or attained significant accomplishments that have contributed positively to the College. This includes but is not limited to: student group involvement, student governance, individuals who devote time to planning activities that enrich our community, and those who have demonstrated exemplary leadership through academic means and/or community service.
The link for ingenuity award nominees will go live in the spring of 2018. You'll need to include the student’s name, email, and preferred pronoun, in addition to your name and contact information. Your recommendation should include in what capacity you know the student and why you believe that student should be considered to receive this award. The more details you can provide, the better chance your nominee has of being chosen. Please note: At the awards banquet, an excerpt from the nomination letter will be read aloud to provide a glimpse into the student’s accomplishments. In writing your nomination, we encourage you to highlight the student’s accomplishments in the first paragraph to be read aloud, then expand upon their involvement throughout the body of the letter.
Hampshire staff, faculty, and students. Please note that students cannot nominate themselves.
No nominations will be considered beyond the deadline, which will be announced in March 2018.
While we appreciate and recognize the efforts of all nominated individuals, our selection committee will choose only the strongest nominees as our 2018 Ingenuity Award recipients.
We look forward to hearing about all the wonderful ways Hampshire students have contributed to our community!
Award recipients, as well as those who nominated them, will be invited to attend the banquet.
