Chapter and Student Chapter of the Year Awards
Active and effective chapters and student chapters are needed to achieve The Wildlife Society's goals, many of which are best addressed at the state/provincial or local level. Chapters and student chapters also strengthen the Society's membership recruitment and retention efforts by providing opportunities for member involvement in Society activities. The Chapter and Student Chapter of the Year awards pay tribute to and recognize exceptional achievements by these important units of The Wildlife Society.
Chapters and student chapters are invited to nominate themselves for the award. The chapters receiving the award are not eligible to apply for the recognition in the following year. The winning chapter and student chapter receive a special certificate at the Society's annual conference award ceremony and their names are added to a permanent plaque on display at the Society's headquarters. Student chapters also receive a $1,000 travel grant to send a student delegation to the annual conference.
