Region I Awards:

The purpose of awards in Alpha Phi Omega is to recognize chapters and individuals who have done outstanding volunteer work for their community, campus, youth or for the Fraternity and who have exemplified the cardinal principles of the Fraternity.

In order to recognize these chapters and individuals in Region I, an Awards Policy was approved by the Region in December, 2011. The policy describes the various roles and details the nomination and selection process. Any chapter or individual brother can nominate a chapter or individual for an award. Instructions are simple! Just download the nomination form (links can be found under the award descriptions), complete the form and email it to the Region I Awards & Recognition Coordinator at awards@apor1.org. The entire policy can be found here.
