Be Cool Write an OTM

Of The Month Awards or OTMs are a way for UMBC students, faculty, and staff to recognize those individuals and organizations that make outstanding efforts to improve the UMBC residential community. Each month, the NRHH Recognition Committee will select one OTM in each category as the Campus Winner, and a number of other nominations as Campus Honorable Mentions. The OTMs selected as Campus Winners are sent on to the Regional NRHH Board for possible selection as Regional or National Winners.

OTMs are always due on the 1st of the month for the previous month (example: March 1st for February submissions)
