The award categories and criteria are outlined below. Please note that all awards should relate to the Club/Collective/Association's activities in 2020 only. It's important to ensure your nomination relates to the criteria below. Don't just tell us that the club is awesome, tell us why it's awesome (with specific examples). The quantity of nominations received for a particular Club/Collective/Association has no impact on determining the award winners; submitting a nomination with as much detail as possible will ensure the Club/Collective/Association has the best chance of winning the award.
Most Active Club, Collective or Association Awarded to the club or association that has run the most events consistently, while maintaining consistent or high turnout to the events and activities. The Committee will take into consideration the number of events the club has run this year, and the number of engaged students the club is seen to have.
Best Club, Collective or Association Event, Activity or Project Awarded to the club or association that has hosted the best Club/Association event, activity or project in the calendar year. This will take into consideration uniqueness/creativity, the level of student engagement, and the impact upon both student life and the greater community. Note: Where applicable, events and activities must have been registered with FUSA to be eligible.
Best New Club, Collective or Association Awarded to a Club or Association that affiliated with FUSA for the first time in the current calendar year (or after the 1st of November of the previous calendar year). The winner will be determined based upon the quality of their events/activities/projects, student/member engagement, and their contribution to the Flinders community.
Most Improved Club, Collective or Association Awarded to the Club/Association that has shown the most improvement - either in numbers, activities or otherwise. The committee will take into consideration all forms of improvement. Where possible, the committee will judge clubs based upon measurable improvement, rather than perceived improvement or anecdotal evidence.
Club/Collective/Association of the Year Awarded to the Club/Collective/Association that has consistently remained active, engaging, and fair for the majority of the year. The Committee will take into consideration the length of time the club has been affiliated, the level of student engagement, quality of events/activities, member recruitment, and anecdotal evidence (if applicable). Two awards (one for Clubs/Collectives and one for Academic Associations) will be determined.
Club/Association Member of the Year This award is for a member of a Club, Collective or Association that has made an outstanding contribution to the Club & Association community. The Committee will take into consideration how the member has assisted the Club/Association; projects driven/managed by the member; and their commitment toward the Club/Association. While service in previous years will be considered for this award, the Club/Association member must have been active during the current year.
