J. Lynn Watson Award
History of the Award
The J. Lynn Watson Award for Community Service has been presented annually since 1983 by the McMaster Students Union and the Inter-Residence Council to the campus group that has made the greatest one-year contribution to charitable giving.
A group’s contributions should:
1) provide a learning opportunity for students in the area of community service;
2) encourage staff, teams, and students to contribute in a meaningful way to a charitable cause;
3) enhance the visibility of McMaster University in the Hamilton community and work towards creating a positive community presence; and,
4) demonstrate McMaster University’s commitment to serving the social, cultural, and economic needs of our community and our society.
Barring special circumstances, no more than one (1) award is normally granted each year.
Nomination forms are available here:
