The Welling Awards are a University of Sheffield initiative that are run by students for students to celebrate the achievements of the student body throughout the 2020/21 academic year. However, for the first time ever a group of students have organised a celebration to recognise those who have helped and supported them throughout this difficult year. 

We were happily informed by the Wellbeing Team that student Steve Hollings had nominated the Archaeology Department to be shortlisted for an award, stating:

For bringing together the student cohort in a time the University is trying to close down the Department and for fighting for the future of Archaeology at Sheffield
