Samuel E. Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center

Kelly ECC Annual Awards Gala

The Annual Awards Gala is an opportunity for the extended ECC family to recognize our affiliated student organizations and student leaders who are active members of our Kelly ECC community and the broader UW community through activism, leadership, philanthropy, community service, and outreach. We also celebrate members of our community who are graduating and toast to the completion of a successful academic year.


While we would love to honor and acknowledge our community in person at our annual Gala, we are unable to do so for Spring 2021 due to health guidelines and campus restrictions. We hope to still provide an engaging and fun end of the year celebration via Instagram. To learn more about how to participate please check out our FAQ.
