  • To better reflect Honors in Action which means a project is based on the Honors Study Topic and includes all four Hallmarks of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship, chapters will no longer submit separate entries for the Hallmarks. The Honors in Action Award will allow chapters to report on 1 Honors in Action Project based on an issue from the Honors Program Guide. The College Project Award will give greater emphasis to the Five Star Chapter Development Plan by allowing chapters to submit entries based on the College Project required at the Three Star Level. It will increase college administrative support because the project is done in conjunction with the college administration. It will also allow chapters who may not be at the Four or Five Star Level to compete for a chapter award.
  • Benefits of New Chapter Awards Integrates Hallmarks, no longer treated separately Simplifies Phi Theta Kappa programming for all (no more learning the primary and secondary focus of each Hallmark, etc.) Clarifies our mission as an honor society, not a service organization Encourages fewer projects with more substance Decreases number of chapter award entries from three to two which means less work for our chapters Reporting on only ONE Honors in Action project and ONE College Project allows time for chapters to focus on membership recruitment and programming more equally Increases number of awards for chapters while ensuring the best of the best are recognized.
  • Chapters will submit ONE entry for the Honors in Action Award. Headquarters will provide two types of recognition for this category: First, the top 50 entries will be awarded no matter what issue they address. But to encourage greater diversity of issues in the award entries, Phi Theta Kappa will also select as many as 3 entries per Issue in the Honors Program Guide.
  • Judging will be based on these traits. The full rubrics are available online at www.ptk.org/hallmarks.
  • Here are the questions chapters should be prepared to answer in their entry… Notes about Resources – chapters should seek out a variety of expert resources. It’s important to get as many perspectives as you can on a particular issue. In addition to printed sources, chapters may use Internet sources, but it’s important to verify the accuracy of an Internet source. The Five Star Competitive Edge Plan offers online videos related to Evaluating Sources and Identifying Suspicious Sources on the Internet. Finally, sources can also be individuals who are considered experts in their field. Setting objectives is another way of saying setting goals. It’s very important to describe what your chapter wanted to accomplish as well as HOW your chapter decided what you wanted to accomplish.
  • The Leadership Hallmark is two-fold: taking on leadership roles/positions (remember, you can be a leader without a formal title) AND seeking out ways to strengthen your leadership skills. Reflection is an important part of service learning. Since chapters work under a specific timeframe for their projects – one calendar year and sometimes just one semester – it’s important for you to consider what remains to be done for the future. This can be an important building block to provide to the next chapter officer team… Quantitative outcomes means those things that can be measured or counted such as how many people participated, fundraising amounts, etc. Qualitative outcomes are more observational evidence about the quality of the project, like lessons learned, feedback/quotes from the participants, how the Honors in Action Project made a difference, etc.
  • Again, this is an award for chapters based on the College Project required at Level Three of the Five Star Chapter Development Plan.
  • Each entry will be judged on these traits.
  • These are the questions chapters should be prepared to answer…
  • Chapters must enter both the Honors in Action Award and College Project Award to be considered for the Distinguished Chapter Award category. Both scores are averaged to determine the Top 100 Chapters. The top 10% will be recognized as Distinguished Chapters… which means the number of Distinguished Chapters can grow as the number of participating chapters increases. Those who reach the Distinguished Chapter status for three or more consecutive years will be recognized with the Continued Excellence Award for Chapters. Finally, the Top 10 Chapters will be recognized on stage at Convention culminating with the announcement of the Most Distinguished Chapter.
  • The brand-new Chapter Officer Team Award emphasizes the importance of teamwork, and is modeled after the Regional Officer Team Award. Distinguished Chapter Officer Award – allows chapter to choose up to 2 officers to nominate. Distinguished Member Award is unchanged—chapters may nominate an active member who does NOT hold any officer position –chapter, regional or international. Paragon – advisors with less than 4 years of service; may win only one time Distinguished Advisor -- 4 years or more Continued Excellence Award – Distinguished Advisor Award recipients are then eligible for this award. May receive every other year.
  • College Administrator Awards are due at HQ by December 1, 2010. All other categories are due at HQ by Wednesday, February 2, 2011. More information available at www.ptk.org/hallmarks.
