Applications Available for Secular Student Alliance 2008 Best Awards
By Leslie Zukor
Does your group's website get zillions of hits a day? Have you raised $1,000 for children with cancer? Is your club simply superlative when it comes to lectures held, achievements earned, and fabulous secular fun had? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then you should submit a Best Award application.
Members of UCLA's Bruin Alliance of Skeptics and Secularists pose with their award for
Best New Affiliate in 2007.
Each year, the Secular Student Alliance awards its annual Best Awards in a number of categories. This academic year, there will be prizes in the following areas: Best Media, Service Project, Website, Best New Club, and Best Overall Affiliate.
The winners of the first four categories will receive an awesome plaque and a whole $300. That's right, this year's prizes have tripled in amount. There are even more perks associated with winning Best Affiliate. The "Best Overall Affiliate" will receive not only a sweet plaque; they will earn $500 worth of monetary compensation.
May 1st, 2008 is the deadline for groups to apply, with the awards being given out at the SSA's annual conference. Winning groups need not have a representative in attendance to claim their prize. Groups may apply for as many awards as they like. Good luck to all who enter!
