On Friday 17th of May 2019, JUSA Awards Banquet took place for the first time. Participants enjoyed a fancy dinner while JUSA management team delivered the awards to some valuable players who distinguished themselves during Studentiaden and throughout the year.
We interviewed two JUSA active members and that’s what they told us about JUSA Awards Banquet:
“ The event went flawless, everything went as expected or even better. For example, at first we thought that maybe not so many people would join but at the end more than 70 people signed up!! The evening together was great for concluding a year full of trainings, new friends, emotions, memories and competitions. It was also a good way to say good-bye to all the sportive students who are soon leaving because their exchange/study program came to an end.”
Nikola Kolev, BSc International Economics and new JUSA Vice president
Husam told us that “one of the purpose of the event was to give awards to some outperforming players, I also got one for topvolleyballer! One of the most interesting and unexpected part of the event was when an excellent floorball player thanked his teammates with an amazing speech in Swenglish, jokes aside it was an inspiring speech full of humor. I also really liked when the volleyball team showed its presence by singing the jaguard (name of the team) chant loudly and with a lot of excitement. As JUSA member, I was really impressed on how fast we managed to sell so many tickets: the first few days it was only 20 and then we quickly reached more than 70 of them, a huge satisfaction for the organizing team!”
Husam Stita, BSc in Marketing Management and JUSA Head of Sports
