Regional Awards Program

The Regional Awards Program for individual and chapter competition recognizes members, advisors and chapters within the region for outstanding efforts in the Hallmarks of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship. Recognition is based upon actual award entries submitted according to the requirements stipulated on each cover sheet. To maintain fairness and equity among all chapters, THE Regional Award COORDINATOR MUST RECEIVE ALL REGIONAL AWARD ENTRIES NO LATER THAN _____________. In fairness to all chapters, LATE AND/OR PARTIAL ENTRIES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. FAXED OR E-MAILED ENTRIES WILL NOT BE JUDGED. The Regional Coordinator will not accept Regional Award Entries!

Send Hallmark Award Packets to the Regional Award Coordinator, _______________:

 

Preparing regional awards is a time-consuming and usually stressful process. However, it is also a time of reflection upon chapters’ and members’ accomplishments. Culmination of the process at the regional awards banquet is a proud moment for everyone in the region, often inspiring continued success, renewed vigor, and motivation to attempt new levels of chapter development.

The Oklahoma/Arkansas Region Awards Program closely mimics the International Hallmark Awards Program to ease chapter participation in both programs. Therefore, the current International Hallmarks Awards Program Guide is an excellent reference when preparing entries. Do not submit an exact copy of your Regional Award entries to the International Hallmark Awards Program. You will need to adapt your Regional entries to include those events that fall within the International Hallmark Awards reporting deadlines when submitting to International.

Persons selected at the discretion of the Regional Coordinator and Regional Awards Coordinator will perform all judging of awards. At least two other Regional Coordinators will judge hallmark and individual awards. No one Regional Coordinator will judge all four hallmarks.

From time to time, special awards are given at the discretion of the Regional Coordinator and/or the Regional Executive Committee. It is specifically the right of the Regional Coordinator not to present an award in any category for which there is no qualified winner.

Most awards will be presented at the  Awards Banquet of the annual Oklahoma/Arkansas Regional Convention and reported on the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society website (www.ptk.org). Individual awards may be presented during one or more of the general sessions of the Oklahoma/Arkansas Regional Convention. Trophies and certificates not accepted by chapters and/or individuals during the Regional Convention will be distributed at the next regional conference.

History of Oklahoma/Arkansas Regional Awards Program

In 1991, the Oklahoma/Arkansas Region struck a medallion, which is used to honor outstanding accomplishments of members and advisors. At that time, research indicated the awards had been given since 1977 when the Oklahoma State Phi Theta Kappa Society was organized. Subsequent research revealed that awards were first given in 1976. In 1987, Oklahoma and Arkansas combined to form the Oklahoma/Arkansas Region.

Today’s awards presentations honor all Phi Theta Kappa award winners, both past and present! All award winners will be honored with an award certificate embossed with the Oklahoma/Arkansas Region seal. Trophies, plaques and medallions also display the Oklahoma/Arkansas Region seal. Hall of Honor recipients are presented with a lapel pin bearing the seal.

Regional Awards Contest Rules

1.       The Regional Award Coordinator must receive entries no later than ______. Neither late entries, faxed entries nor e-mailed entries will be accepted for judging.

2.       All entries submitted should be the work of chapter members (students). Chapter members are encouraged to have advisors, alumni and faculty members proof award entries and make suggestions for improvement before submitting them to the Regional Award Coordinator for competition.

3.       A chapter advisor must sign the cover sheet of most award entries in the space provided. The signature will signify that the work submitted is indeed the work of chapter members and a true representation of the chapter's activities to the best of the advisor's knowledge. Entries submitted without the advisor's signature will not be judged.

4.       Send all entries to the Regional Award Coordinator in one package. Information for all entries should be contained within this single package. Ancillary materials submitted separately will not be included in the judging process.

5.       Award entries submitted without all required components will be disqualified. For example, Individual Awards submitted without required recommendation letters or Hallmark Awards submitted without essays or chronological lists will be disqualified.

6.       All contents for each award entry should be simply assembled together by a staple. Please do not assemble entries in binders or folders. Uniform assembly of entries ensures fair and equitable judging for all entries. Two copies of each entry must be submitted. Failure to submit two copies will result in disqualification of that entry.

7.       All Hallmark Award entries become the property of the Region and cannot be returned. Be sure to make copies for your records.

8.       Your chapter will receive confirmation via e-mail verifying that the Hallmark Coordinator has received your entries.

The chapter must be in good standing within the Oklahoma/Arkansas Region to be considered for a chapter award. Chapters must have paid regional membership fees for the prior year and all prior conference fees to be considered in good standing.

11.   Regional Awards will be judged using the same criteria used for the International Hallmark Awards.  These criteria can be found in the Hallmark Awards Program Guide found at http://www.ptk.org/hallmarks/. This guide also includes several useful tips on writing essays and recommendation letters, and preparing chronological lists.  It is highly recommended that you study this guide ahead of time. Details matter!
