Student Alumni Board, a program of the K-State Alumni Association, seeks nominations for its Distinguished Young Alumni Award. The award, which was established in 2012, recognizes two K-State graduates who are using the leadership and service experience they acquired at K-State to excel in their professions and contribute to their communities.

Anyone may nominate a graduate for this award. The individual must be 35 or younger as of Oct. 1, 2016, and have graduated from K-State. Nominations are due by midnight Oct. 6.

Selections will be made by a committee of Student Alumni Board members and members of the K-State Alumni Association board of directors. The award recipients will be notified in November, and they will be invited back to campus from Feb. 27 to March 1 to deliver keynote speeches and spend time speaking to student groups and university classes. Student Alumni Board also will honor the recipients at a dinner and award ceremony that week.
