Samuel E. Wood Medallion Award

The Samuel E. Wood Medallion Award, a bronze medallion three inches in diameter and bearing a relief of the Bowman Hall tower, the name of Stout, and the motto "Learning, Skill, Industry, and Honor", is presented annually to seniors who have contributed in student activities, leadership, and scholastic ability.  A committee composed of faculty, administrators and students make the selection. Only 1 percent of the student body is eligible to receive this award. The Samuel E. Wood Medallion Award is presented to seniors only and on a local basis. To those seniors who receive it, it brings prestige and honor, as it is the highest award any student at UW-Stout can achieve.
