contributions our chapter schools make in their local communities. Therefore,
an award is now presented each year to a chapter(s) that has made unique and
outstanding efforts in the area of community service. Chapter will be judged
on assessment of community need, uniqueness, and overall effectiveness of
their program. If your chapter would like to be considered for this
recognition, please submit an essay explaining those accomplishments in this
area of service. The essay, not to exceed 350 words, and any additional
