Honors Case Study Challenge Awards

The Honors Case Study Challenge provides chapters with the opportunity to supplement their Honors in Action research based on the current Honors Study Topic (Transformations: Acknowledging, Assessing, and Achieving Change) with the use of newspapers of varying viewpoints. The Challenge also provides members an enhanced learning experience through the use of newspapers, print or online, and encourages them to stay abreast of current events.

Individual members or chapters may enter the competition. The four award-winning entries received a $500 scholarship award.
