Alpha Gamma Delta women are doing amazing things in the places where they live and work. All alumnae are encouraged to submit a sister for recognition who shares our Purpose with others every day.
The Distinguished Citizen Award is presented to alumnae in good standing who have made outstanding contributions and achievements in various fields and professions in their communities. Achievements of nominees should be unique and clearly rise above and beyond all levels of expectation. Fields to be considered are: Arts, Business, Education, Government, Public Service, Religion, Science and Social Service. In addition, nominees should have some connection to Alpha Gamma Delta in their alumnae life. Nominations can be made by an alumnae chapter/club, a collegiate chapter or by an individual member of the Fraternity. Awardees are selected by International Council and the award is presented at International Convention.
