The Audio Visual Award
The “Audio Visual Award” was created in 1999 to provide public recognition of the exceptional work being provided to the campus through the department’s work study students.
An annual ballot of nominees is reviewed by a panel of current employees, faculty, staff, administration, and alumni of the college and one individual’s work is selected as “most outstanding.”
Each year's winner is announced prior to the start of spring finals. Their name is added to a special plaque in the AV office, plus she or he receives a special framed certificate award signed by the Westminster College President, Dean of Academic Affairs, the Director and the Assistant Director of Audio Visual Services, along with a gift certificate from the college bookstore.
We take tremendous pride in these individuals and their accomplishments, and applaud their contributions to the overall heritage of this office and Westminster College.
If you have had the pleasure of working or interacting with our students in AV and wish to recognize their hard work and dedication to Westminster College, please take a moment to nominate them for this year's award using our nomination form.
