Penn State Altoona looking for nominations for Stand Up Awards

Penn State Altoona is accepting nominations for the Rock Ethics Institute’s 2021 Stand Up Awards.

This award honors Penn State undergraduate students who have demonstrated courage, fortitude and ethical leadership by taking a stand for a person, cause or belief.

We need your help identifying students who have demonstrated exceptional ethical leadership.

Stand Up Award winners receive a $1,000 prize and will be honored at the 2021 Stand Up Awards ceremony on April 22.

Any faculty, staff, student or community member can nominate a Penn State undergraduate student for the award.

Undergraduate students from all Penn State campuses, colleges and majors are eligible.

The deadline for nominations is Feb. 5.

If you know a student who would be a strong candidate for a Stand Up Award, we encourage you to nominate them. Also, please help spread the word by sharing this call for nominations with colleagues and on departmental Listservs.

Additional information about the Stand Up Awards, including profiles of previous honorees, can be found at StandUpPSU.com.
