Find Your United Way Donate

The Student United Way Awards is open to any individual student involved with a Student United Way as well as entire Student United Way chapters. All submissions must be reflective of work completed during the calendar year 2017. One entry is required for each award submitted and there is no limit to the number of entries you can submit. There is no fee for entry.

If an entry receives an award, the manner and details of announcing that nomination and award is strictly within the discretion of United Way Worldwide. The entrant understands that all awards may not be given or publicized in the same manner and some might be presented in a ceremony and others might not.
