Nominate a sister for the 2024 Outstanding Alumna Award

The ZTA Foundation invites you to submit a nomination for the Outstanding Alumna Award.

This biennial award presented at Convention recognizes an alumna who has shown exceptional leadership in her chosen profession, achieved significant accomplishments and made notable contributions to society.

Nominate a sister

This year’s recipient will receive the award during Convention 2024, taking place July 16-20, in Indianapolis.

Former recipients have included leaders and pioneers in journalism, sports reporting, higher education, engineering, business, technology, innovation, music, philanthropy and the military. Many recipients have also served ZTA in their post-collegiate years, but that is not a requirement for the award.

Before you begin your nomination, you will want to gather personal information about your nominee, including collegiate chapter and maiden name, if applicable. (Note: The maiden name allows International Office staff to confirm your nominee is in good standing with ZTA.)

The deadline for submitting application is Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2024. If you have any questions about the process, please contact Foundation Senior Director Erin Hartley at

The Foundation appreciates your help in identifying sisters who are making a difference “within and without our circle.” We thank you for your own outstanding loyalty to Zeta Tau Alpha.
