The Rock Ethics Institute at Penn State announces a call for nominations for its Tenth Annual Stand Up Awards in recognition of undergraduate students at Penn State’s campuses who have demonstrated ethical leadership in taking a stand for a person, cause, or belief.

There are many Penn State undergraduate students at every campus who are ethical leaders and have the courage and fortitude to take an ethical stand for a person, a cause, or belief. We would like to learn about each of these students and consider them for the 10th Anniversary Stand Up Award.

We invite any faculty, staff, student, or community member worldwide to nominate Penn State undergraduate students who have demonstrated ethical leadership for initiatives both large and small. Selected honorees will receive a monetary award of $1,000 each, be recognized at a spring 2017 ceremony & in a short video, and highlighted in traditional & digital publicity throughout the University.

The deadline for nominations is January 31, 2017.  

Please consider nominating someone you know by visiting and please forward this message to anyone else you think might be interested in doing so.
