On Campus Group of the Year Award

What is the IET On Campus Group of the Year Award?

IET On Campus student groups are helping us to engineer a better world by inspiring students at universities all around the globe to pursue a career in engineering and technology and to engage with the IET throughout their time at university.

The IET On Campus Group of the Year Award is our way of recognising and rewarding the IET On Campus student group that has gone above and beyond the rest between 30 April 2018 – 30 April 2019.

We’ve put together our criteria for the IET On Campus Group of the Year Award, which contains four main questions:

  1. Your most successful event of the year (April 2018-2019):
    1. Tell us about the event you are most proud of and how it was your most successful event of the year. Please make sure you include the following in your answer:
      1. Title of event
      2. Number of attendees
      3. What your budget was and how you stuck to it
      4. Did you use On Campus funding?
      5. Did you promote the event on social media?
  1. Your most engaging social media post:
    1. Most engaging can mean anything from the number of clicks it received, likes, comments and/or shares. It does not need to be about an event, it can be a link to a website, a video, anything! As long as it was relevant and on your On Campus social media page.
  1. A time you have collaborated:
    1. A time when you have joint forces and teamed up to work on something with other people such as your local network, other On Campus groups, other volunteers, your university or societies, etc.
    2. This can also include any positive effect you have had on your local community.
  1. The greatest challenge your group has overcome

We’re asking you to let us know how your IET On Campus group has met these criteria and why you deserve this prestigious award.
