Community Builder Award

Our Community Builder Award recognizes students that often lifted the learning experiences of their classmates and our classroom activities. They do this consistently and selflessly–and throughout their entire course of study. For this award, the OPWL faculty went through the nomination and finalist selection process.

Professional Growth

This is awarded to a student that entered the OPWL program as a brand new practitioner in the OPWL related fields but they exhibited considerable growth over the duration of their studies and developed themselves professionally.
