Outstanding chapter members are nominated by their chapters and their Alumnae Advisory Committees for awards recognizing individual achievements and contributions to their chapters. Qualities such as leadership, chapter service and overall excellence are the basis for the awards.  

Chapter awards are given for general excellence, scholastic achievement, outstanding community service, effective programming and Panhellenic participation. During odd numbered years, the award presentations are a highlight at our biennial convention. On the even years Grand Council does a virtual award presentation on the Fraternity Web site.
