This award recognizes a current Queen’s student whose volunteerism and leadership has contributed in a positive way to one or more aspects of the Queen’s community in all its diversity and/or the broader Kingston community. This volunteer activity and leadership may include but is not limited to promotion of student and alumni connections. The student’s contribution(s) can be made in the year of nomination or over several years.
In 2022 the Queen's University Alumni Assocation (QUAA) renamed and adjusted the criteria for this award from the previous Outstanding Student Award. The QUAA respectfully acknowledges the past recipients of the Outstanding Student Award and looks forward to celebrating recipients under the new terms.
