Real. Strong. Women.® of Distinction awards

2018 Award recipients

The Real. Strong. Women. of Distinction campaign is a newer initiative highlighting Alpha Chi Omegas who are on the road to achieving their dreams  – sisters who were inspired by their own Alpha Chi Omega experience to become the best versions of themselves.
These women are breaking barriers and bringing innovative ideas to life. They’re educators, high-powered CEOs, small-business owners and healthcare professionals. They’re attorneys, philanthropists, STEM pioneers and nonprofit leaders.
Real. Strong. Women. of Distinction are your sisters who are doing great things across the globe and down the street. They’re difference makers, risk takers and dream chasers. They’re out to make a positive impact on their own lives and on lives around them.

Members may nominate a sister (or themselves) for recognition as a Real. Strong. Woman. of Distinction. To be eligible, a sister must be:
  • A member who has set herself apart from her peers by rising above the status quo and making an impact within her community 
  • Able to identify her Alpha Chi Omega experience as a contributor to her success 
  • In good standing with Alpha Chi Omega 
  • Initiated no less than two years prior to the nomination
All nominations should be 300 words or less. Once nominated, the nominee will receive a request for additional information. A review committee composed of Alpha Chi Omega professional staff and volunteers will be charged with scoring and reviewing each candidate. Chosen nominees will be named Alpha Chi Omega’s 2019 Real. Strong. Women. of Distinction and will receive recognition including publicity in The Lyre and a plaque honoring her selection.

Applications for 2019 awards (coming soon) are due January 21, 2019.
