The "Of the Month" Award or OTM is a service of the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) intended to recognize the outstanding contributions of individuals, groups, and programs of on-campus living communities of colleges and universities nation-wide. Any person affiliated with the on-campus living community may submit or be nominated for an OTM.

Every OTM should be month-specific and illustrate how the nominee went above and beyond expectations during the month of nomination. Campus winners are selected each month by the UB NRHH chapter and are submitted to the regional level, where they may be considered for regional and national recognition.

Have you recognized someone lately? If not, OTMs are the perfect way to do just that! Listed below are the different types of OTMs that someone or something can be nominated for along with their criteria.
