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.
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 https://ite-awards.secure-platform.com/a/ 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.
