Student Chapter Community Service Project Award
Share |

The CSHP Student Chapter Community Service Project Award now recognizes a student chapter’s contributions to patient care in their community.

Previously this award focused on three areas of patient care: (1) Asthma Education, (2) Tobacco Cessation, and (3) Poison Prevention Awareness. This award can now be applied to any topic in regards to serving the public so we look forward to seeing the variety of projects and activities this year!

Objectives

The primary objective of the CSHP Student Leadership in Health-System Practice Award is to foster continued personal and professional development through a formal recognition program. A secondary objective is to recognize student leader role models who have an interest in health-system practice and encourage student involvement in professional organizations.

Funding

The award program will be administered by the CSHP Public Relations Committee. The award will consist of a framed certificate and a monetary award of $100. Student chapters are eligible to win all three project awards and the associated award (e.g. a winner of three awards would receive $300).

Eligibility

All activities reported must be completed beyond the pharmacy schools’ curriculum. For example, if students are required to give a presentation to the community as part of a course requirement, this activity may not be recorded for credit in the final report. Chapters submitting their projects for the Student Chapters Community Service Project Award may not submit the same project for other CSHP Awards (e.g. CSHP PR Award).

Criteria

Criteria for the award will be used in the award selection process. Applicants will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Collaboration (15 points): The extent of collaboration with other organizations such as state and local pharmacy organizations, local health departments, local hospitals, community pharmacies, grocery stores, senior citizens groups, nursing agencies, local physicians, etc.
  • Participation (15 points): How many student pharmacists, faculty and staff were involved in planning or implementing Asthma Education, Tobacco Cessation, or Poison Prevention?
  • Originality (30 points): How creative, innovative and original were projects and programs during each project?
  • Outcome (40 points): What effect did the project have in the community? For example: how many patients were immunized directly through this project, how many patients were educated through this project?
Deadline

The annual deadline for submissions is July 1st.

Recipients

Each winning community service project will be recognized at Seminar’s Opening Session and at the Awards Ceremony, given an framed certificate, and a monetary award of $100.
