Student Secularist Award announced

The NSS in collaboration with the National Federation of Atheist, Humanist and Secular Student Societies (AHS) is proud to announce a new prize for AHS members: The Student Secularist Award. We are funding the prize to encourage even more secularist campaigning by students.

NSS President Terry Sanderson said: "I hope this award will go some way to providing an extra boost and impetus to the campaigning of secular students around the country. This is such an important area - maybe even a training ground for the next generation of professional secular activists. I'm sure we're going to see some imaginative nominations for the prize and I look forward to hearing about their efforts."

The total prize fund is worth £250 and representatives from winning societies will be invited to attend Secularist of the Year 2013. The winners will be chosen by a panel from the NSS and the AHS and prizes will be presented at the AHS National Convention 2013.

To win the award, student groups can do anything from debating secularism in a unique and exciting way, to running an effective secularist campaign, to organising a big event to inform people about secular issues - check the AHS webpage for how to enter.
