Most Active Club Awarded to the Club, Collective or Association that has run the most events consistently, while maintaining consistent or high turnout to the events and activities. The assessment panel will take into consideration the number of events run this year, and the number students engaged.
Best Club Event, Activity or Project Awarded to the Club, Collective or Association that has hosted the best 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 Awarded to a Club, Collective or Association that affiliated with FUSA for the first time in 2022 (or after the 1st of November 2021). 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 Awarded to the Club, Collective or Association that has shown the most improvement - either in numbers, activities or otherwise. The assessment panel will take into consideration all forms of improvement. Where possible, the panel will judge based upon measurable improvement, rather than perceived improvement or anecdotal evidence.
Club of the Year Awarded to the Club, Collective or Association that has consistently remained active, engaging, and fair for the majority of the year. The assessment panel 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 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 community. The assessment panel will take into consideration how the member has assisted the Club, Collective or Association; projects driven/managed by the member; and their commitment toward the Club, Collective, Association. While service in previous years will be considered for this award, the member must have been active during the current year.
