The Beta Delta chapter of Phi Upsilon Omicron won second place in the National Professional Program Project competition.

Phi Upsilon Omicron is a national honors society for students studying family and consumer sciences.

The chapter completed a service project and explained how their project affected the community as well as themselves for this year’s competition.

For their project, titled “ENGAGE in Servant Leadership for a Better Community,” Phi U presented tips on healthier eating habits and recycling to children and their parents at Little Scholars Childcare center.

The project is completed by members on a voluntary basis, however “almost everyone” in the society contributed to the project, according to Danetra Hodges, publicity chair for Phi U.

Phi U was awarded $100 as well as a certificate of achievement, which is on display in the Academic Complex.

According to Hodges, the prize money will be used for funding future service projects.

This is the second time the WKU chapter placed second in the competition.
