National Student Employee of the Year Award 

Each spring, NSEA coordinates a selection process and chooses the National Student Employee of the Year (SEOTY) to recognize the outstanding contributions and achievements of students who work while attending college. It is with gratitude and joy we recognize these students for their achievements in their student employment positions.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was no 2020 Student Employee of the Year recognized, as many of our wonderful student employees were unable to continue their time on campus and in their positions. For 2021, with the pandemic continuing to impact us all, NSEA will recognize top students from each region. All students recognized for the 2021 year will be spotlighted here, so be sure to check back in April 2021!
