The Campus Awards Ceremony is an annual event hosted by the Division of Student Affairs that recognizes students, faculty, and staff who rise above the rest in making a difference for others and adding value to the university community.

Steffany Barrios, a Health Science Studies major, won the Emerging Leader award, an award given to students who are charting intentional paths where they learn what it means to lead. Nominees must be Boise State students committed to personal leadership development and be dedicated to student involvement and learning outside the classroom.

Nina Khampha, a K-12 Physical Education major, and Tracy Sedano, a Health Science Studies major, were among the six winners of the Spirit of Boise State Award.
