Region President forwards the awards submission to the Student Awards Committee
by the deadline date.

not affiliated with a region, the award entry is submitted directly to the
Student Awards Committee (email@example.com) by the deadline date.
Individual Performance Award (SIPA)
Individual members of each student chapter may receive either a
two-year or four-year Student Individual Performance Award.
The awards are designed to require continued
active participation by members in student chapter activities.
The awards require sustained individual
effort, both in the administration of the student chapter and in the increase
of knowledge in information technology.
The awards are based on a point
evaluation of various activities which are essential to the organization and
operation of the student chapter.
rules are structured so that a total contribution will be acknowledged.
These are awards of significant merit which
recognize in a fitting manner the services rendered and sacrifices of time and
effort made by a member on behalf of the chapter.
The award year for the SIPA award follows the
academic school year, from August (or September) to May.
