VCC Outstanding Alumni Awards

The Outstanding Alumni Awards were established to recognize the outstanding achievements of our graduates and non-alumni who have made a significant contribution to VCC and/or the local community.‌

It is time once again to nominate your favourite VCC grad in one of the following categories:

  • Career Success
  • Changemaker
  • Community Contribution
  • Honorary Alumnus (not a VCC grad, but one who has contributed to the VCC community or the community at large)
  • One to Watch

Nominations close January 26, 2018. Simply fill out the online form and upload any supporting documents.

Winners will be announced in February 2018 and celebrated at an Outstanding Alumni Awards ceremony on March 14, 2018 immediately prior to the Flourish Gala.
