There are a total of eight (8) individual chapter award categories according to the Office of Student Engagement and FSL Points of Emphasis. An award for each Point of Emphasis will be given to a chapter in each of the three FSL councils: Multicultural Greek Council, Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic Association. In addition to the Points of Emphasis, overall awards will be given for each of the three Areas of Experience categories, which will be awarded to one chapter from the entire FSL community.

APPLICATION AND SCORING
Chapters are able to apply for as many awards as they believe they deem themselves qualified. Chapters are not required to apply for all eight (8) awards. However, chapters are asked to invest considerable time and effort in this application process. For each of the eight (8) Points of Emphasis, chapters will need to submit a report with the following requirements:
● Typed and double spaced
● 12 point, Times New Roman font
● No more than three (3) pages
● Must answer the prompt
In addition to written documentation, chapters will need to prepare a presentation no longer than 20 minutes, which will be followed by a 10-minute question and answer period with the panel of judges. The presentation is designed to add value to the written documentation and provide judges with context to ask questions about specific pieces of your chapter’s success. Professionalism and time investment for the presentation portion of the process will weigh heavily in the judge’s decisions.
Regardless if a chapter is applying for one award or all eight awards, they are allotted the same amount of time for the presentation. Noting this, it is important for chapters to be succinct in their delivery and remember the judges are looking for specific items. You will find the breakdown of what the judges are looking for below.
Journey Accreditation completion will also be utilized to calculate a chapter’s overall score. As such, points earned from completion of the Journey Accreditation Program will constitute 50% of the chapter’s overall score for each Point of Emphasis category.
