Individual and Chapter Awards

The Sigma Alpha Sorority National Awards program recognizes outstanding achievements, programs and efforts of both sisters and chapters.  Award recipients are chosen based on the evaluation of required chapter/member reports, specific applications and/or live presentations held during the Sorority’s annual national events.

Regional Pillar Awards

Regional pillar awards are determined from an in-depth review of each chapter’s timely term report submission. Alumnae judges review the report against specified criteria and a rubric to determine the top 3 finalists from each region for each of the four pillars. This year, for the first time, the first-place pillar chapter from each region is invited to present the chapter’s program to a panel of alumnae and corporate partner judges.  The scores from the live presentation will be combined with the scores from the written term report evaluation to determine the national finalists for each of the four pillars.
