The annual WUJS Awards are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all the people who have contributed and dedicated themselves to Jewish life on campus. It is a night where students from unions all over the world can join together to celebrate all that they have achieved the past year.
We want to make students feel proud of their activities on campus, to remind them that what they’re doing makes a difference and has a positive, tangible impact on student life. We award prizes for a whole host of campus activity. Celebrating young leaders who have promoted Jewish and Israel education, organised events of significance and import, actively engaged with interfaith or led a social action campaign are just a few of the awards offered.
This year we have added a number of new awards and we received more nominations than ever before.
