About the Saitsa Awards

At Saitsa, we believe outstanding students and instructors should be rewarded for their dedication and hard work at SAIT, which is why we honour their commitment through awards.

Saitsa is committed to celebrating those who encompass and embrace the spirit of what it means to be a student of the SAIT and Saitsa communities. Our awards predominantly recognize students who demonstrate a commitment to improving the student experience at every opportunity through school spirit, student support, and advocacy. We also have awards for instructors and staff members.
