The Omicron Kappa Upsilon-Chapter Award recognizes an OKU component chapter that has created exemplary programs that promote excellence at the local level. The award will honor a component chapter that has created innovative programs that foster excellence in the spirit of Omicron Kappa Upsilon.
Any component chapter, in good standing*, is eligible to receive the award. A chapter that receives the award will not be eligible for the award for 5 years.
The Chapter Award Selection Committee will consider all activities by a component chapter that recognizes and encourages the art, science and literature of dentistry. Selection will be based upon the innovative and creative programs that the chapter has developed to encourage excellence in educating and motivating students, faculty and the dental community.
The Chapter Award Selection Committee will review all material that the component chapters submit to the Editor for inclusion in the "Component Chapters Activities" page of the annual edition of the Bulletin.
The Chapter Award Selection Committee will review each chapter's submission and make its decision by January 1 of the year of the Supreme Chapter Annual Business Meeting.
