At the Corner of Character and Compassion

We are preparing for our focus on character and compassion during the month of October.  Here are a few things to share with your chapter:

Character Essay Contest

2017 Theme:  Our world and communities are in need of character, compassion, and kindness now more than ever.  How are you putting one of the pillars of character (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship) into action within your community?  How are you changing your corner of the world for the better? Please be specific in your narrative.


1st Place:  $1000

2nd Place:  $500

3rd Place:  $250


  • All collegiate entrants must be women enrolled full time at a College or University and in good standing.
  • All submitted essays become the property of Sigma Sigma Sigma and may be published in any chosen venue.

The Panhellenic community of the 1st place winner will receive a Sigma Sigma Sigma Woman of Character Retreat facilitated by Sigma Sigma Sigma staff and volunteers.
