This award is presented to a student whose unique character, enthusiasm, and positive attitude have made a lasting impression on Dixie State. This student has discovered their individuality and is not afraid to let it show. In so doing, he/she has contributed to the morale of faculty, staff, and students on campus. The Dixie Spirit Award is nominated by the campus community and then all nominees are contacted and asked to answer questions specific to their category. These materials are then reviewed and narrowed to a field of five finalists by a preliminary screening committee. The materials from the finalists are given to a head judge and the finalists are contacted to participate in a private interview where a panel selects the winner.
