Award of Excellence


2021 Award Deadline: March 24th 

The Award of Excellence is the highest honor that a member organization can earn from MASC/MAHS Michigan Student Leadership. Groups that receive this award exemplify the highest standards of organization, member development, community-minded service and goal-oriented vision for their programs.

Important information on the 2021 AOE

The MASC/MAHS office is currently redesigning the structure and submission requirements for our Award of Excellence. Traditionally, all AOE award applications are sent via mail for evaluation and scoring. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are focused on redesigning our approach to align with program concepts and a logistical process that makes sense during this time. More information will be available soon. We appreciate your patience and desire to remain excellent!
