Chapter Recognition Award

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 two activities covering two of the three areas is eligible. The activities must meet three of the four Standards for Health Education and Health Promotion, and adherence to five of the eight Standards for Chapter Management and Student Professional Development. If a research project is chosen, both standards must be met.

  • documented letters of appreciation and/or validation from the recipients of the activity or from the chapter advisor
