Our campus chapter of Phi Theta Kappa has been selected as the Honors Case Study Challenge Award Winner. Beta Theta Omicron has won the Honors Case Study Challenge nine times since the competition began in 2003.

This award is based on research the student leadership and faculty adviser conducted in 2016 and which they wrote up in a series of essays and critical-thinking questions. The chapter will be awarded $500 as well as a plaque and a place of honor in the Parade of Scholars at the 2017 Phi Theta Kappa Convention.

The award-winning submission from Beta Theta Omicron was a writing and research project entitled Natural or Engineered: How Can We Feed the World? Chapter officers, Akayi Thein and Janah May Oclaman, led the research and writing.
