Each year at the Annual CPA Convention, SOGII adjudicates student oral and poster presentations and awards the Henry Minton and Morrison Awards. The Henry L. Minton award is named for a Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Windsor who championed LGBTQ Psychology long before it was a popular topic. Each year SOGII recognizes student excellence in the field of LGBTQ Psychology by selecting two recipients of the Henry Minton Award, one for best paper and one for best poster. Each recipient receives a cash prize and a certificate. 

Beginning in 2015, SOGII also awards the Morrison Award for LGBTQ Inclusive Research Methods. The Morrison Award is given to a student presenting a poster outside of the SOGII section who has clearly demonstrated the use of LGBTQ-inclusive research methods (e.g., reporting sexual and gender identity demographics, including LGBTQ participants in a sample, not arbitrarily removing LGBTQ-identified participants from a sample, including LGBTQ-inclusive response options for survey participants).
