ANNE ANASTASI AWARDS – have been repurposed to benefit more members.

Effective 11.26.2020, the ANNE ANASTASI RESEARCH PAPER PAPER COMPETITION has been replaced by the ANNE ANASTASI STUDENT RESEARCH EXCELLENCE AWARD. Details will appear here in early spring, 2021.  We will broadcast all changes through the Chapter Delegate Network, this website, the spring newsletter, and through Psi Beta’s social media outlets.  


A plaque is awarded for an innovative, resourceful, and useful chapter project or program that uniquely promotes the quality of two-year college life and advances the discipline of psychology and the mission of Psi Beta. (This is a chapter award, not an individual award.) The deadline for nomination is June 1st.

Student and chapter award for two outstanding community service projects. The student winner will be awarded $100. 

A recognition “plate” is awarded to all chapters meeting or exceeding the chapter excellence standards. The standards reflect Psi Beta’s mission. The plate can be attached to the “perpetual plaque” – available for purchase from the Psi Beta store.  The submission period is May 1 to 15. The deadline for submitting the application is May 15th. Special Opportunity this year: Thanks to the generosity of Pearson Education, the first 10 chapters that submit a qualifying (10 or more chapter activity points) Chapter Excellence report will each be awarded a $150 donation for chapter expenses. The checks will be awarded during the Psi Beta awards and social hour at the annual APA conference in August. (Winners need not be present to win.)

A plaque, certificates of recognition for participating Psi Beta members, and $100 is awarded to a Psi Beta chapter which, in collaboration with Psi Chi members, have conducted an activity having a significant impact at the local, state, regional, or national level. The collaborative efforts may focus on scholarship, leadership, research, and/or community service. The nominee may be nominated by a chapter officer or by the faculty advisor. Psi Beta also awards a plaque to the participating Psi Chi chapter.
The deadline for nomination is June 1st.

A plaque is awarded to an outstanding Psi Beta faculty advisor. Chapter officers and/or members can nominate their advisors. NOTE: Some chapters are fortunate to have two or more advisors who work together to oversee an excellent chapter. If that is the case with your chapter, and your members wish to submit a nomination for co-advisors to your chapter, you may do so but please be sure the nomination letter describes how each advisor individually supports your chapter.
The deadline for nomination is June 1st.
