Awards of Distinction

AWARDS OF DISTINCTION

RECOGNIZING INTERFRATERNAL EXCELLENCE

The North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) annually recognizes excellence in the fraternal experience by conferring Awards of Distinction to individuals and groups who exemplify leadership, service and fraternal values. The award categories recognize outstanding undergraduate fraternity men, chapters, councils and advisors. The Gold and Silver Medals recognize interfraternal industry leaders and partners with our highest honors, and the Laurel Wreath Award recognizes outstanding interfraternal educational programs by both individuals and groups.
These honors play a significant role in advancement of the NIC mission and vision, as well as the industry as a whole. Recognizing the value and impact of individual and group efforts on college/university campuses and within interfraternal organizations conveys the importance of innovation, courage and commitment to a positive fraternal experience.
The nomination process is open to any interfraternal organization or related group/partner interested in nominating a qualified candidate for recognition. Award recipients are announced in May and awards are presented by NIC representatives throughout the following summer and fall in the recipient’s local community. These presentations take place during public ceremonies on campuses or at interfraternal events and programs like a convention or other interfraternal gathering to give recognition among peers, friends and families.
