Psi Chi congratulates these chapters for winning the Regional Chapter Awards and commends the Psi Chi National Council for its continuing expansion of the Psi Chi award program to recognize outstanding Psi Chi chapters, members, and advisors. Regional Chapter Awards will continue to be presented annually to chapters in each of Psi Chi's six regions. Within each region, there may be chapter winners in each of the two categories of large schools (over 5,000 students) and of small schools (under 5,000 students). Psi Chi chapters that best achieve Psi Chi's purpose "to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of the individual members in all fields, particularly in psychology, and to advance the science of psychology" will be named as winners.
Each winning chapter is presented a check for $500 and a plaque suitable for framing to display in their department. The awards are intended to perpetuate the chapters, to identify chapters as role models for others, and to promote the purpose of Psi Chi. The criteria for selecting winners are evidence of effective chapter activities for the past three years, strict adherence to the application procedures, and creative and effective presentation of application materials.
