Starlington Prize

The Starlington Prize for Extraordinary Mortar Board Membership is awarded each year to nominees who have proven that they understand the purpose of Mortar Board, are dedicated to their chapter and have internalized the true obligation of membership. Any member may nominate another member for this prize. Each nomination has the option for seconding, where someone else can agree to the nomination you have sent in. These seconds are crucial to nominees’ applications and to the review process. Nominations and second nominations are due on or by April 15.
