Of The Month Awards
Of the Month Awards, otherwise known as OTMs, are one means for NRHH to recognize outstanding students, advisors, programs, and more on the campuses of colleges and universities across the United States. OTMs are the primary source of recognition throughout NRHH. Any individual can submit an OTM for the University of South Alabama. These are due by the 3rd of the month after the month for which the nominees are being nominated. From these nominations, University of South Alabama winners are selected and are forwarded on the regional level, where your nominee may be the OTM for the NAACURH Region. Winners in the region are then forwarded on for national consideration. Your OTM could win for the entire nation!
