It’s that time of the year again!  Nominations are being accepted for the four Jesuit Student Leadership awards that will be given out at the 9th Annual Leadership Recognition Ceremony on Tuesday, April 25 at 8 p.m. in the Quick Center for the Arts. Last year, for the first time, The Magis Award, The Cura Personalis Award, The Contemplatives in Action Award and The Men & Women for Others Award were awarded. The Collaborative Leadership Committee received such positive feedback after last year’s ceremony that they are being brought for another year.

Below are the updated descriptions for each of the Jesuit tudent Leadership Awards (please note that both individuals and groups of students are eligible to win each of these awards):
