Chapter Activities Award Rules

(Covering June 1 through May 31)

This award is determined from the report submitted from the chapter to the National Block and Bridle Vice President. The report must be postmarked by June 15 to be judge. There is no "Official Chapter Activities Reporting Form;" each school creates their own according to the guidelines listed below.

Submit your report with one activity per page under the categories listed below. If you are reporting more than one activity under a given category, simply duplicate the heading information and update the activity number (for example: "Education/Leadership Activities, Activity #3" for the third activity listed under this category).

Awards will be presented at the next National Block and Bridle convention. First through fifth place will be recognized with a plaque.

The report should contain the following items to be considered for the Chapter Activities Award:

A. Cover page: Include the name of your school, "Block & Bridle Chapter Activities," and the year.

B. Title page: At the top, put "Block & Bridle Club, Chapter Activities Reporting Form, 20xx-20xx Academic Year" (use correct years). Also include the following:

1. Chapter Name

2. College/University

3. Address

4. Description: (For example, "XX University grants a Bachelor (4-year) degree in Animal Science. The Animal Science Club invites students of any major to participate, and has members majoring in Animal Science, Agricultural Business Management, Horticulture, Poultry Science, and Biochemistry.")

5. Current number of club members

6. Number of initiates reported to the National Secretary during the school year

7. Certification: (In italics, type a statement that reads: "We have reviewed the information contained in this activities reporting form and verify that it is an accurate record of the activities of the local club which is a member of the National Block & Bridle Club, the undergraduate student affiliate of the American Society of Animal Science." Following this should be places for the Club Advisor, Department Head, and Academic Dean to sign; include their names (typed) and telephone numbers.)

B. Table of Contents: Under each of the category headings (see below), list each activity and the page number it is on.

C. Activity Sheets: Each activity sheet should have the following:

1. Heading (Category) and Activity number
2. Name of Activity
3. Date of Activity
4. Percentage of Club Members Involved
5. Name of Coordinator(s)/Chairperson(s)
6. Description of Activity
7. Describe the value of this activity to the Club, Department, College, University, State, and/or Industry

The activities should be listed only once in the most appropriate category. Categories include:

Education/Leadership Activities (25 pts)
Service Activities (25 pts)
Fund Raising Activities (25 pts)
Social Activities (15 pts)

Emphasis should be placed on activities such as college wide events that involve the total club membership. Example of types of events to consider include:

Field Trips or Tours

All instructions must be followed for a chapter to be considered for the award.

- All information listed must be for the most recent preceding school year.

- All information must be typed for consideration in the national competition.

- An activity can only be listed once; therefore, select the most appropriate category, i.e., educational/leadership development, service, fund raising, social and other.

- No less than a 12-point font may be used, all activity pages must be double-spaced, margins must be 1", and each activity is limited to a maximum of one page.

- Prioritize the listing within each category from most important to least important.

- All signatures (Chapter Advisor, Department Chair, and Academic Dean) MUST be obtained.

Date Due

Three copies should be submitted and must be postmarked by June 15 to the National Vice President. For late entries, 3 points will be deducted for each day beyond the postmark deadline (100-point scale), and entries will not be considered if they are two or more weeks late. The judging will be done during the summer and winners will be recognized at the next national Block & Bridle Convention.
