OYY is looking for nominations for receivers of the OYY honorary academic decorations

The honorary academic decorations will be awarded at the Student Union anniversary celebrations to honour the work that has been done for the students. We request the nominations on 22th of January at the latest.

The Student Union commemorates distinguished people with honorary decorations. There are four classes of OYY’s honorary academic decorations: a badge of honour, and the first, second and third class medals. By presenting decorations the Student Union has been able to honour different types of work that has been done for students already for five decades since 1965.

The Student Union of the University of Oulu (OYY) is requesting its member organisations to provide their nominations for receivers of the OYY honorary academic decorations. Deadline for the nominations is January 22, 2023. The decorations will be awarded as a part of the Annos 63 anniversary ball, which will be on February 25, 2023.

The organisations can nominate candidates for receiving a decoration with a form, which you can find here. 

The Board of OYY awards the decorations based on its Rules for Honorary Decorations by the proposal of the Honorary Committee. You can find the rules from OYY’s website in the documents page: https://www.oyy.fi/en/about-us/documents/ . The decision-making will not account for the positions of trust of the nominated candidates which have begun in 2023. Exceptional activity, acting as a Chair or working within OYY receive special recognition in the decision-making.
