The Backbone Awards

Nominated by Minerva students. Voted on by every other student in the country.

Students in the Minerva portfolio program at The University of Alabama choose the nominees each year. Then, students (must have a .edu email address) from around the country vote for their favorites. The winner receives a beautiful bronze Backbone Award (yep, bronze is the top award). The runner-up receives a stunning aluminum Backbone Award.

There are no nomination or submission forms. Want to get on our radar for a Backbone Award? Be a good person and do great work.
