In order to encourage activity among the student chapters within the Southern District, an award was created in 1972 to recognize the best student chapters. A fellowship fund was originally established in 1972 by an anonymous donor that would go to worthy students of a graduate program. In 1977, the fellowship was changed to a $200 cash award to the winning Student Chapter and $150 to the runner-up Student Chapter. All other student chapters that submit a chapter report automatically receive $100. The outstanding Student Chapters are chosen based on their chapter reports that are submitted to the Education and Student Chapter Committee Chair by March 1st.

For more information, contact Education and Student Chapters Committee Chair.

Since 1984, International ITE has recognized an Outstanding Student Chapter which is chosen from the districts’ winners. The winning student chapters from Southern District are forwarded by SDITE to International ITE by the April 1st deadline. SDITE Student Chapter winners of International ITE’s Outstanding Student Chapter Award are denoted with an asterisk (*).
