All YC employees—faculty, staff, and administration—are eligible to be nominated for a YC Way Award. Anyone can nominate someone: peer-to-peer, supervisor-to-employee, and employee-to-supervisor.

Any nominations received after the deadline will automatically be applied to the next Semester’s award process.


Ruffy High Fiving you

Recognize a peer for going above and beyond the call of duty!

When you fill out the form a certificate of gratitude sent to the person and their name is listed on the website for a long time!

It only takes a moment, and a simple "I appreciate you" is usually enough to brighten someone's day.

We look forward to seeing your nominations!
