The Alumni Association and the Bozeman Chamber of Commerce sponsor the banquet. Honored students are nominated by faculty in their college or department. Qualified seniors must have a 3.5 grade point average as well as demonstrated campus leadership and community service. In turn, the award-winning students each select a mentor to be honored with them at the event.
