CHAMPION CHAPTER

Champion Chapter is a series of membership engagement-focused challenges that chapters may complete for national recognition. By completing activities, chapters accrue points. Completing activities across four sections (to accrue points) will result in Champion Chapter recognition, with a banner for the adviser’s classroom/meeting space or school award case. Additional incentives such as ribbons at conferences, national recognition in publications, and plaques are available.

Champion Chapter is open to all active chapters. Chapter advisers may access the activity list for each section within the Leadership Community.
