Nominate a Student

If you’ve worked with an outstanding undergraduate student or group of students this year, please consider nominating them for an award. Each award comes with a $500 prize!

Nominate a Community Partner

We are especially excited to announce that 2018 will feature our first-ever Community Partner Award for Co-education. Our community organization partners are critical to our students’ learning, and we want to celebrate that with this new award for organizations that are truly outstanding in their support of our students. Consider nominating your organization or another for this award that includes a $500 prize to support the work of the organization! Find out more about nominating a community partner here

Become an Evaluator

A major part of the Symposium is the opportunity for students to have their presentations evaluated, and we rely on the Loyola community—alumni, community partners, faculty, and staff—to do that. Find out more about becoming an evaluator here
