This is the highest award a chapter can receive and recognizes a year of chapter achievement. Chapters can submit documentation of chapter functions to receive this award.
In an effort to make the awards process easier, the Review Committee has developed a Chapter and Activity Awards Quick Guide 2014. This worksheet will help you identify which standards your chapter has met and therefore, which awards your chapter is eligible for.
Chapters can submit individual activities for this award in one or all of the following categories: advocacy, research, service, and teaching.
Any chapter with three activities (at least one service and one education) are eligible. The activities must meet all four Standards for Health Education and Promotion, one research project meeting both the Standards for Research, and adherence to all eight of the Standards for Chapter Management and Student Professional Development.
