2018 SASE Inspire Awards


WITH EVERY YEAR, THE SASE COMMUNITY GROWS IN SIZE, TALENT, AND CONTRIBUTION. The SASE Inspire Awards are designed to recognize those chapters around the nation who have gone above and beyond the call of duty over the year. These chapters are measured in professional development, culture, awareness, diversity, community involvement, the impact of events, initiatives and event attendance, to name a few. The SASE Inspire Awards are broken down into the following five categories:

Most Influential Chapter

The Most Influential Chapter Inspire Award recognizes the chapter that has demonstrated the greatest positive influence within the community, region, and nation. Only chapters that have been nominated may apply for the Most Influential Chapter Award. You may nominate more than one chapter by April 30.

Most Improved Chapter

Displays the most growth and improvement over the past school year

Most Philanthropic Chapter

Awarded to the chapter that has demonstrated and embodies the spirit of service within their chapter, community, region, and/or nation.

Same as above, but only for chapters who are less than two years of age. Recently formed chapters are:

Each of these categories recognizes both a primary recipient as well as an honorable mention recipient. During the upcoming year, all of the recipients will also be sharing their successes with the rest of the SASE community in the form of the SASE's blog, SASEprints, and on SASE's YouTube channel to share ideas and strategies that can help all other grow.
