Celebrating UW-Stout's Leaders

The Leadership Awards is held annually each May and serves as a time to recognize and honor all of our student leaders on campus.

About the Leadership Awards

UW-Stout's annual Leadership Awards is all about taking a pause to acknowledge, recognize and thank the remarkable student leaders that contribute to this campus every day.  We are fortunate to see our students lead in a variety of capacities, whether that be through a student organization, an on-campus job, a co-op experience or a hundred of other ways.

If there's one thing we know for sure, it's that Stout students choose to lead and have amazing stories to share.  This is our time to tell them.
