This the 19th year that Carnegie Mellon is participating in this award program which recognizes the outstanding contributions of college students who work while attending college. 

The contributions made by all student employees are important; however, this award seeks to acknowledge the student whose performance is exceptional. Nominees will be judged on reliability, quality of work, initiative, attitude, and contribution to the department. Students whould have a track record of producing quality work and communicating effectively with students, staff, faculty, and parents.

The SEOTY nomination process requires the submission of The SEOTY Campus Nomination Form by February 17, 2017. Please fill in the document, save as a PDF, and attach in an email to Pati Kravetz at
