The Student Union commemorates distinguished people with honorary decorations. There are four classes of OYY’s honorary academic decorations:
🏅The badge of honor can be given as a recognition of honor or gratitude for the very meritorious work done for the benefit of the student union or its goals.
🥇The 1st class medal may be awarded in recognition of meritorious work performed for the purposes of the student union. The recipient can be a member or a former member of the student union or a close person to the student union.
🥈The 2nd class medal may be awarded in recognition of a person who has in a meritorious manner participated in the student union’s work. The medal can also be awarded for meritorious work done for the good of an organization operating within the student union.
🥉​​The 3rd class medal may be awarded to a member or a former member of the student union who has shown activity ​within the student union or in an organization operating within the student union.

By presenting decorations the Student Union has been able to honour different types of work that has been done for students already for six decades since 1965. From here you can find the complete list of the awarded academic decorations.

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 25th, 2022. The decorations will be awarded as a part of the Annos 62 anniversary celebrations, which will be held on February 26th, 2021.

Organisations can nominate candidates for receiving a decoration with a form, which you can find here. It is possible to nominate several candidates but you must fill out only one form per candidate. So, fill out another nomination form in case you wish to nominate multiple candidates. More specific instructions how to make a nomination are written to the forms instructions.

The Board of OYY awards the decorations based on its Rules for Honorary Decorations by the proposal of the Honorary Committee. The decision-making will not account for the positions of trust of the nominated candidates which have begun in 2022. Some positions of trust, such as activity in OYY or chairmanship, receive more value than other merits in the decision-making process.
