Honor Award Nomination Form

Sigma Zeta Honor Award Key

1. The Sigma Zeta Honor Award will be presented annually by the Executive Council to not more than one active student member of each chapter.

2. The person to be so honored by each chapter will be chosen by the members of that chapter. The chapter will determine the most feasible method of selecting its honoree, but it is recommended that both student and faculty members be involved in the selection.

3. The award is not necessarily limited to seniors, but will not be granted twice to the same person.

4. The Honor Award key will be presented to the chapter honorees at the annual meeting. If unusual circumstances prevent one of those so honored from attending the meeting, the key will be mailed.

5. A chapter is not obligated to grant the award every year if it fails to find a member with suitably high qualifications. It should not become merely an automatic award granted annually, say, to the chapter president.

6. The Executive Council may at its discretion grant the Honor Award to other distinguished persons.

Please be sure that all of these guidelines for the Sigma Zeta Honor Award are followed. Failure to do so could lead to disqualification of your nominee.

1. The candidate for the award should have at least a 3.00 cumulative scholastic ratio (A = 4.00) at the time of the nomination for the award. Current information should be included in the nomination.

2. Factors which will be taken into consideration are contributions to the program of the local Sigma Zeta chapter and attendance at national meetings including any presentation of papers. Any other activities and honors should be included in the nomination.

3. The nomination should be submitted using the Honor Award Nomination Form prior to the National Convention or it may be brought to the National Convention and presented to the National Executive director at the National Council Meeting. The nomination must be signed by the faculty adviser if a paper version is submitted.

4. The nomination must be in paragraph form of 200-250 words. This will be read in its entirety at the National Banquet and will be printed in the Sigma Zetan.
