LPS Student Awards & Honors

Part of our mission here at LPSSA is to advocate for and promote LPS students’ interests within the larger Penn community. One way we can do that is by helping you share your accomplishments—we know how many of you are working hard and achieving great things, and we want everyone else to know too.

Have you received an award or honor, won a competition, or accomplished something notable while at Penn? If so, please email info@pennlpssa.org with more information so we can feature it on our website. If you’re not sure it’s worth mentioning, it probably is, and we want to hear about it!
