This week we would like to recognize the incredible work being done within our student and professional chapters across the nation.

Premier Chapter Awards

Our annual Premier Chapter Awards recognize an EWB-USA student and professional chapter who strive to meet the ideals of a successful EWB-USA chapter. These ideals include excellence in organization, fundraising and public relations; engagement in mentor/mentee relationships; and chapter and regional participation with EWB-USA.
