about the program
The PGN MVP Awards program is designed to recognize members who have gone above and beyond to further the success of their chapter, to showcase the best-in-class examples of leadership, and to celebrate the diversity of talent amongst our membership.
Born in August 2018, this cross-chapter collaboration project has now expanded to our schools , giving us the opportunity to recognize our own heros on a campus-level. We also added a new category this year, the entrepreneur award to celebrate those individuals who continue to help us innovate.
The Rising Star -- This award recognizes the emerging leader who has strong executive board potential. Their record should reflect a hunger for responsibility and a history of effective execution skills. Successful candidates are in their first 1 - 3 semesters, have not yet obtained an executive-level position, but their track record reflects high potential.
The MVP -- This award is for the unsung member who always steps up to the occasion and ensures whatever needs to get done is done. This person’s track record should demonstrate that they continuously go above and beyond, are willing to step outside their comfort zone to help others, and push PGN members to execute with excellence.
The Entrepreneur Award -- This award is for the member who most exemplifies the entrepreneurial spirit of PGN. It is not necessary that they have started their own business, but rather that they are focused on continuously innovating and improving. This individual is always suggesting new ways to look at old challenges, often suggests and helps execute new programs or events, and isn’t afraid to take risks and try something.
I Am PGN (for seniors) -- This person most exemplifies the spirit of PGN. They are driven to success and devoted to your members, mentoring new members and encouraging members to be involved. They have been instrumental in creating a stronger organization, making the future of PGN brighter. This person will receive a gift in lieu of a trip to the convention.
