The University of Arkansas at Little Rock is looking for the next winners of the Staff Achievement Awards.

UA Little Rock employees, students, alumni, and community members can nominate an outstanding staff member through March 15 in three categories: personal achievement, service to the university, and community service.

The winners will receive a $3,000 award, distributed via payroll. The winners will be announced during a drop-in celebration from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 20. Staff members who are celebrating work anniversaries, have graduated in the past year, and retiring will also be recognized.

The three categories for nominations are:

  • Personal Growth – Recognition will go to an individual whose scholarship, research, or creative talent has been particularly outstanding.
  • Ben Fry Service to UA Little Rock – Recognition will go to an individual who is distinctive in service through committees, special events, implementation of creative ideas or support and encouragement of others.
  • Community Service – Recognition will go to an individual who has been particularly successful in organizing community events or had major achievements in civic, service, or specialty organizations/events.

In addition to the Staff Achievement Awards, applications are available for the Staff Senate Scholarship, which is being increased to a $1,000 scholarship this year, and the Jerry Crittenden Employee Book Scholarship, a $75 book scholarship, for staff members who are furthering their education at UA Little Rock. Staff Senate will be awarding two of each scholarship.
