Student Chapter of the Year Award

New Incentive Recognizes and Rewards Successful Student Chapters

The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) launched the Student Chapter of the Year awards program in 2014 to recognize and reward outstanding NECA Student Chapters. The award was created to recognize and reward those students, faculty and NECA staff working hard year-round to run successful Student Chapters. These chapters are the ones promoting activities that expose students to the electrical contracting industry and also facilitate interaction between members and students.  

The objective of the award is to also serve as an incentive to Student Chapters that do not have enough funds to organize activities. The winner will be recognized during the Student and Faculty Dinner at the 2016 NECA Convention.

The Illinois Institute of Technology was the first school to be awarded the Student Chapter of the Year. The prize money was used to buy lab materials for the class. 

Who will take the prize this year? Complete details about the award is attached. Activities included in application should range from Fall 2015 to Spring 2016 semesters.

The winner of this award will be recognized at NECA's annual convention and trade show, NECA 2016 Boston, during the Student and Faculty dinner.
