Student Actions Awards

Students across the globe are demonstrating a new generation of leadership which includes a balance of real world and digital activation to help move students from curious to committed global citizens, making choices today to create a better tomorrow. The approach is authentic and the movement is gaining momentum.

A New Generation of Change

myActions is thrilled to announce the Student Actions Awards for the 2014 Fall Semester. Over 100 schools participated in this student-led activation program, driving over 65,000 sustainable or socially responsible actions on campus and in local communities. Student leaders across the country worked with friends, student organizations and classes to deliver real world impact through green, caring and healthy actions.

Like our planet and our communities, campuses are constantly evolving, reflecting the culture and spirit of their inhabitants and therefore no two are identical. For this reason, the Student Actions Awards are based on a methodology that celebrates progress, momentum and impact for the most recent semester across essential engagement levers. Recognition is awarded on four different levels: Green Level, Silver Level, Gold Level, and Platinum Level.

Every school recognized in the 2014 Fall Summary supports student engagement through an array of existing programs, classes, events and student organizations focused on sustainability, compassion and well being. Progressive student leaders have developed creative paths to raise awareness, activate and engage students. We have identified three stages of activity and understanding from which each student interacts: Curious, Casual and Committed.

Recognizing Excellence

All schools included in this summary are being recognized for excellence across an array of levels:

Green Level schools have established affinity groups and students sharing actions with measured impact either through a group / class or participating in a national program.

Silver Level schools have student leaders committed to student and group activation across campus through focused challenges and delivering on impact targets.

Gold Level schools have established a system of connected leadership to offer a myriad of interaction opportunities through programs, events and campus initiatives as paths to deliver personal and collective impact.

Platinum Level schools have robust tiers of student leadership and collaborative momentum to engage students and consistently deliver positive and progressive impact.
