Nominations sought for Spirit of State Awards

January 26, 2011

With the sixth annual Spirit of State Awards, Mississippi State will recognize
outstanding contributions made by students toward improving student life.
These premier awards are open to all MSU students from all campuses and recognize excellence in campus involvement; service to the
university community; actions that promote the Spirit of State; and overall impact on peers and the broader campus community.

There are two important ways to help:

1. Identifying students who embody the Spirit of State and making them aware
of the award program; and

2. Supporting outstanding students by nominating them, or writing a letter in
support of their application if asked.

Students who feel they represent the ideals of this award, and those who wish to nominate a deserving student, may complete the appropriate forms at All forms should be submitted online by
Feb. 18. The awards will be presented at a special recognition
program April 8.

Thanks for identifying and supporting outstanding students who
embody the Spirit of State.
