The Spirit of BG Awards

BGSU functions daily on and random acts of compassion, kindness, courage, expert help, extra effort, and caring toward our students and colleagues. These gestures, which build and strengthen our community, continue to be acknowledged, and the responsible individual recognized, by the presentation of the "Spirit of BG" award. A joint project of the Administrative Staff Council and the Classified Staff Council, this award is given to a deserving individual monthly by each constituent group.

In order to nominate an administrative staff employee for the Spirit of BG award, complete the nomination form including, in five lines or less, why the person you're nominating is deserving of this fine award. All nominations via ASC should be submitted using the link on this page.  Nominations will be sent to the committee chair. The ASC committee will review all nominations and select a winner.  

We all know when someone goes the extra mile to help; however, this person often goes about their day with little or no fanfare to acknowledge their "good works." Now you have the opportunity and means to thank that person. Any member of the university community (faculty, staff and students), can nominate an administrative staff member. Announcements of winners will be posted on the respective constituent listprocs, web sites, and in the Monitor. Awards given by the ASC include a monetary prize in the amount of $75 along with congratulations from colleagues and friends.

Awards will be presented on a monthly basis with applications due by the last Friday of each month to be considered. Applications after this date will be held for the following month.The committee reserves the right not to issue an award in any given month.
