2018 National Awards

Each year Sigma Alpha presents national awards to chapters and sisters who have demonstrated a commitment to the Sorority’s four pillars. The 2017-18 National Award winners will be recognized at the National Emerald Banquet, Saturday August 4th in Dallas, TX,  which is being held in conjunction with the 2018 National Conclave.

To insure ample recognition opportunities for every chapter, the Awards Program includes both application based awards and awards that are selected based on chapter participation and information submitted through Chapter Term Reports.

Awards are based on activities held during the school year Fall 2017 - Spring 2018.

This year, we have some exciting new additions to our awards program. 

  • We are happy to announce our newest award added to our list, the Excellence in Social Media award, which is presented to the chapter that maintains the most informative, creative, and professional chapter social media program.
  • The scoring system for the Outstanding Fellowship pillar award has expanded to a format in which term reports and activities from the year are reviewed, along with conducting a Regional Award Finalist presentation at Conclave.  The purposes of Regional Award Finalist presentations are to continually raise the quality of the local programming by chapters, recognize exceptional programming that supports the Sorority’s pillars, encourage professional development of members, and share programming information across chapters. IN 2019, the other pillar awards will be expanded along these lines.
