CHME award winners


The student CHME award is presented each year by member universities and colleges to a hospitality student who is deemed worthy of this award. 

The criteria for making this award is very much up to each institution and we encourage the institution to set their own criteria and decide which hospitality student should be presented with this award. However, we consider this award to be both valuable and prestigious to the recipient and certainly a recognition of excellence - be it the best dissertation or industry project, the highest overall marks for their final year.
