Oregon Tech students deserve recognition for their achievements, dedication and service. Any Faculty, Administrator, Staff, or Student may submit a student award nomination letter. You may nominate multiple students for the same award or one student for several awards, and a student may nominate him or herself.

Letter of Nomination
Write a nomination letter. Indicate the student’s name and for which student award you are nominating the person. Clearly state how the student meets the student award criteria and why you are nominating the person for this award. Nomination is only considered for that specific award and not for others; however, you may nominate a student for more than one award with a separate nomination letter. Criteria for each award are available on this page, under Student Awards Criteria. Include a paragraph or sentence explaining how you know the person you are writing about and the nature of your relationship with them. Also include an evaluation of the student’s skills and accomplishments.
Nomination Letter Deadline: 5:00 pm on March 22, 2023 to Student Affairs: CU 217 (Klamath Falls) or submit via email.
Letter(s) of Recommendation
It is highly encouraged by the Student Awards Commission that the student seek at least one recommendation letter (no more than 5) from a student, staff, faculty, friend or community member. The letter should express their support for the student award nomination with a few points from the award criteria. Indicate the student’s name and for which student award you are in support of recommending the person for. Criteria for each award are available on this page, under Student Awards Criteria. Include a paragraph or sentence explaining how you know the person you are writing about and the nature of your relationship with them.
