Nominations open for Social Justice Project of the Year Award

The Centre for Studies in Social Justice invites nominations for its Social Justice Project of the Year Award. This year the centre wishes to honour a student group. Eligible nominees include student groups whose projects have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the rights of the marginalized or oppressed, the health of people and the environment, or the well-being of animals.

Nominations should include:

  • a letter from the nominator explaining why the designated group deserves the award
  • two supporting letters from individuals familiar with the nominated group’s contributions or a brief overview of the project from the participants
  • any appropriate supporting documentation (articles that describe the project, testimonials, etc.)

The deadline for nominations is March 5. The centre will present the award at a campus reception in late March or early April.

Send nominations and all supporting documents to the Centre for Studies in Social Justice. Please direct any questions to director Tanya Basok at 519-253-3000, ext. 3498, or e-mail
