Volunteer position medals

Volunteer position medals are awarded to the Guild's volunteers at the end of the year. The medal should be seen as an appreciation for a job well done and encourage continued commitment. All persons who held a volunteer position during the majority of the financial year are entitled to a medal. The medal will be awarded at the end of the financial year.

Keep an eye out for more information about how to apply for your volunteer position medal.

The Volunteer position medal is available in three degrees: the lowest degree is received after a completed year as a volunteer, the second degree is received after a completed year as committee leader and the last degree is received after a completed year on the Board.

Each medal is available in an additional four degrees signaling the number of years as a volunteer. After three completed years as a volunteer, the medal is supplemented with a badge hanging above the medal. After four years, another tile is added and finally, after five completed years, a third and final tile is obtained.

Medals of Merit

These medals are generally given to someone who has done something special for the Guild during the past year. Depending on the ”dignity” of what the person has done, they are given different medals. The medals are handed out at the annual spring ball Kalibreringsphesten (literal translation: The Calibration Party), but you can nominate someone for a medal year around in the form below. The K-guild has 4 different medals. You can read more about the medals here below, and here you will find a list of previous awards (in Swedish).

In the form below, you can nominate someone you think has made extraordinary contributions to the K-guild and thus deserves to be appreciated with a medal of merit!

Who do you want to nominate?


Special Honors Medal

The special honours medal is awarded for something that was particularly great the past year. The medal (probably) doesn’t look like in the picture, but is made especially for the nominee. Different shapes it has had over the years are for example a wrench, a computer and a laminated excel sheet - the question is what shapes the special honors medal will take this year?


The K-spirit

A direct translation of K-andan is ”The K-spirit” which is nothing to joke about and someone who has the K-spirit should be awarded this medal. What true K-spirit really is, that is something you can discuss, but the medal is usually awarded to someone who has done something extraordinary for the Guild. Who do you think has shown proof of having the K-spirit this year?


Crossed Cannizzarro

Weird name for a medal you think - but no! Stanislao Cannizzaro (1826-1910) was an Italian chemist that in 1853 discovered the Cannizzaro-reaction. The reaction describes the phenomena when aldehydes are dissolved in and potassiumhydroxide solution in ethanol, and are then fractioned into its corresponding alcohol and acid - a true classic! The medal is awarded to someone who has done something truly extraordinary for the Guild and its members, over a longer time period.


Gorba Magnum

This medal is the Rolls Royce of all medals, the finest of them all. Gorba Magnum is awarded to people who have put down an enormous amount of time and effort to do fantastic things for the Guild. Among the honorable people who have received this medal you find both Inspectors as well as ordinary students that have been very involved at the Guild. Also Göran ”Gorba” Lindblom himself received this medal in 2016 - he was the first President at the K-guild!

K-MARK

In order to raise the K-guild’s cultural level and the outside world's K-level, well-deserved places, houses, communities, etc. must be K-marked. These places must have the right attributes and be of clear K-dignity. It is the responsibility of each guild member to visit these sites if the opportunity arises. Trivia: In Sweden, “Kulturmärkning”, or short “K-märkning” is the term for the legal protection of buildings and environments of cultural and historical importance. The literal translation is “Culture marked” or “K-marked”. The K-guild K-mark has absolutely nothing to do with this apart from the lucky coincidence of the very suitable abbreviation. Here you can find a list of K-marked places with motivations (in Swedish)
