ITE established this award in 2020 to recognize a student chapter that has experienced the greatest momentum (or most improvement) in the past year.



To qualify for the award, a student chapter must submit a narrative that is no longer than six pages including  photographs, and  can  address  (but is not limited to)  activity  in  any  of  the  following  areas:  Chapter  Administration, Application  of  Technical  Knowledge;  Networking Events;  K-12  STEM  Outreach;  New  Member  Recruitment;  Diversity  and  Inclusion;  Training/Professional  Development;  Field  Trips/Technical  Tours;  Service  Projects;  and  Leadership  Development.  

The narrative should cover specific improvements and/or special efforts that leadership has implemented,  and which have resulted in positive change for the Chapter and the membership.  

Examples could  include,  but  are  not  limited  to,  how  you’ve  increased  attendance  at  meetings,  broadened participation  outside  of  traditional  engineering  students,  or  helped  your  members  develop  leadership  and  professional  skills.  This  narrative  should  illustrate  how  your  leadership  is  applying  good  ideas  to bring  your Chapter  success.


Submission/Selection Process

This should be submitted as a PDF to the District Award Coordinator by March 1. Each District will then submit one winning Student Chapter for entry in the international competition via no later than April 1. These deadlines allow judging to be complete in time for the award winner to be announced at the ITE Annual Meeting and Exhibition.



The Student Chapter winning the award will be recognized at the ITE Annual Meeting and Exposition Awards Luncheon and in ITE Journal. In addition, a travel reimbursement up to $1,000 to attend the meeting as well as a free Annual Meeting Registration and a ticket to the Awards Luncheon will be given.


NOTE: A Student Chapter cannot receive the Award in consecutive years. A Student Chapter cannot be recognized with the Student Chapter Momentum and Student Chapter Awards in the same year.
