LPH Awards

Lambda Pi Eta Banner
Lambda Pi Eta offers five opportunities for outstanding chapters, chapter advisors, and students to receive national recognition for their embodiment of the six goals of Lambda Pi Eta. The winners are presented with their awards during the LPH Business Meeting at the NCA Annual Convention. Advisors and students alike are both eligible and strongly encouraged to submit award nominations.

Chapter of the Year Award  

How chapters demonstrate and facilitate the goals of Lambda Pi Eta is what makes each chapter unique. The chapter that best exemplifies each of these goals receives the Chapter of the Year award. In addition to an award plaque, the Chapter of the Year will receive a $200 cash prize from the NCA in recognition of the successful execution and adherence to the principles and mission of the honor society.
 
 

Rookie Chapter of the Year Award

New chapters not only strive to reach the goals of Lambda Pi Eta, but must also find their place on campus and develop procedures and traditions that the chapter will adhere to in the future. The chapter that has been chartered within the last three years and best exemplifies each of these goals receives the Rookie Chapter of the Year award. In addition to an award plaque, the Rookie Chapter of the Year will receive a $200 cash prize from NCA in recognition of the successful execution and adherence to the principles and mission of the honor society.
