The Volunteering, Clubs and Societies Awards

The Volunteering, Clubs and Societies Awards

The SRCā€™s annual Volunteering, Clubs & Societies Awards (VCS) celebrate the various achievements and success stories of affiliated societies.

This year the VCS Awards were bigger and better than ever. Mhairi Harris, the SRC's Vice President (Student Activities), decided to completely revamp the event adding new award categories and hosting it in a new venue; the Kelvin Gallery. The night was complete with food, wine and speeches from the likes of Anton Muscatelli and the University Chaplain. 

It all kicked off with a heavenly hoola-hoop performance by Volcanic Ash complete with a leotard and a disco diva backing tune - I'd let him hoop my hoolas any day. We were then treated to a sing song by Natalie Moffat who sang a memorizing rendition of 500 miles, her soothing tones and mellow guitar were almost enough to distract me from the free fruit sticks for a while - alas I had far too many and made myself ill. The final act of the night were two fantastic flute players who performed a song so beautiful it made me feel like I was in a Disney movie. The night was also filled with guest speakers including Choral Stimulation and Kat Denholm (Vice President of Membership, Clubs and Societies at the QMU).

Photos from the night

The event was covered by myself, Nathan Stilwell, Katica Laza and Kieran Kay. We decided to use both Snapchat and Twitter to cover the event in order to show all the BTS action from a fancy university event (Snapchat) and to give a comprehensive report of winners and runners up (Twitter). We divided ourselves up into teams of two and tackled the night head on. Photos, videos, filters, hashtags, you name it, we did it! Nathan and Kieran worked on the Twitter together with Kieran taking the photos while Nathan typed out the tweets. Katica and I took a more organic approach and just shouted at each other when we saw something "snap worthy" to make sure we didn't double snap (because that would be SO embarrassing). All in all it was a success, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Thanks VCS Awards!!

A huge congratulations to all the winners and the nominees from everyone at the UofG Social Media team - here's to another great year of voulenteering, fundraising and making a difference in people's lives! Hope to see you - and the free wine - next year.
