Nautilus Awards for College Citizenship 2024 – Nomination details

2024 Nautilus Awards LogoNominations are now open for the Green Templeton College Nautilus Awards for College Citizenship 2024.

The awards take place each year and are awarded by Green Templeton to students who have gone beyond the call of duty and responsibility to contribute to the college.

The deadline for nominations is Wednesday 24 April 2024 at 12:00. The nomination form can be accessed at the bottom of this page.

About the awards

There are three categories of award:

Nautilus College Citizenship Award

Bestowed to individuals who have outstandingly contributed to improve the college environment at Green Templeton. Examples include (but are not limited to) organising events that create a sense of social cohesion and inclusion or providing outstanding support.

Nautilus Academic Award

Bestowed to individuals who have outstandingly contributed to improve the academic environment at Green Templeton College. Examples include (but are not limited to) organising academic events, providing support to the community, leading academic activities.

Nautilus Sports Award

Bestowed to individuals who have outstandingly contributed to improve the sportive environment at Green Templeton College. Examples include (but are not limited to) leading sports teams and contributing to the sports atmosphere and engagement across the community.

Criteria for nomination

The primary criteria for the Nautilus Awards for College Citizenship is that the individual has gone beyond the call of duty and commitment in their contribution to the various aspects of Green Templeton College. Simply holding particular positions or achieving awards outside Green Templeton are not reasons alone why the individual shall be awarded a Nautilus.

Previous Nautilus awardees cannot be awarded a second Nautilus Award for College Citizenship in the same category. A student may be nominated in more than one category but may not receive more than one award in a year.

In previous years, there have been tit-for-tat nominations, when two students have nominated each other and they each have only one nomination. These cases will be recognised with the ‘TFT’ symbol in the panel table. There is nothing implicitly wrong with this, but it shall be taken into account by the Nautilus Awards for College Citizenship Committee when deliberating to ensure that these are genuine nominations.

Often there are unsung heroes that contribute significantly but do not receive publicity because they occupy less visible positions.

Number of awards

There will typically be one winner and up to two honourable mentions in each of the three categories. The Awards Committees decisions during the deliberation are final.

Nomination process

Nominations are now open and will close at on Wednesday 24 April at 12:00.

Nominations must be submitted in writing, using the form below. Any questions should be sent to the office of the Principal.

Students can be nominated by other Green Templeton students or other members of the Green Templeton community. Students can also nominate themselves if they provide a supporting statement from another student or other community member.
