Awards at Spring 2014 Sectionals

Brothers of New Jersey,

For those that don’t know my name is Eric Strickland, I am the Section 101 & 102 Awards Coordinator and will be responsible for coordinating awards this semester at Sectionals.

If you won an award last semester you must bring it back and return at the time of registration.

Here is a list of awards that can be earned and what a chapter or brother has to do to qualify for one.

Awards that there are specific requirements for:

Gang’s All Here: For the chapter with the largest percentage of active brothers at Sectionals.

Man Mile: For the chapter that has traveled the most miles to Sectionals. This is calculated by multiplying the number of active brothers and pledges attending by the amount of miles from their school.

Roll Call: For the chapter with the best roll call. Roll Call can be no longer then 3 minutes in length.

Spirit: For the chapter with the most spirit. This is not necessarily being the loudest chapter of the day but has to do with the enthusiasm the chapter shows throughout the day.

Service Boy: This award goes to the chapter that collects the most things for the host chapter’s Service Boy project at Sectionals.

Awards we will be accepting nominations/submissions for this year:

Service Girl: We will be deciding the winner based on your chapters submission of your top 4 service projects since last sectionals. We would like one project for each field of service and we want to know what you did and why you did it/why it was the best project for your chapter. Pictures are always great to include.

Dorothea Lange Historical Award: Awarded to a chapter in New Jersey who documents their academic year as a chapter the best. For this award, chapters will submit 3 to 4 photos of the chapter and/or chapter activities, as well as a blurb about the chapter highlighting things their chapter had done in the academic year up until the spring New Jersey sectional conference. The blurb will need to include such things as an amazing fellowship, service projects, a large pledge class, and so on, making a historical record of how the chapter has accomplished LFS for the year.

Jeff Cantor Leadership Award: Given to a brother who best exemplifies the cardinal principle of leadership.

Blue & Gold Awards: Given to a male (Blue) and female (Gold) brother who exemplifies the cardinal principle of fellowship

Service Superstar: Given to a brother who best exemplifies the cardinal principle of service

Outstanding Section 101 Alumni Volunteer Award: Awarded to an alumni volunteer who has provided exceptional service in his/her volunteer role within Section 101.

Section 101 Distinguished Service Key: Awarded to a Brother for exemplifying the cardinal principles of Alpha Phi Omega and unselfishly providing exceptional service to Section 101 over a sustained period of time.

Outstanding Section 102 Alumni Volunteer Award: Awarded to an alumni volunteer who has provided exceptional service in his/her volunteer role within Section 102.

Section 102 Distinguished Service Key: Awarded to a Brother for exemplifying the cardinal principles of Alpha Phi Omega and unselfishly providing exceptional service to Section 102 over a sustained period of time.

PLEASE SUBMIT ANY NOMINATIONS/SUBMISSIONS FOR SERVICE GIRL, DOROTHEA LANGE HISTORICAL, JEFF CANTOR LEADERSHIP, BLUE, GOLD, SERVICE SUPERSTAR, OUTSTANDING SECTION 101 VOLUNTEER, SECTION 101 DSK, SECTION 102 VOLUNTEER, & SECTION 102 DSK AWARDS BY FRIDAY APRIL 4TH AT 11:59 P.M.

Also this semester we will be deciding on a New Jersey Awards Policy. This policy will be voted on at the Section 101&102 joint business meeting and go into effect immediately following the spring conference if approved.
