The Key to Completing Hallmark Awards Entries? Teamwork.

The Key to Completing Hallmark Awards Entries? Teamwork.

"Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results." — Andrew Carnegie

"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much." — Helen Keller

"None of us is as smart as all of us." — Ken Blanchard

So the countdown is on… Chapter Hallmark Awards applications are due in 20 days.  Don’t panic – divide and conquer with teamwork!

Are you feeling overwhelmed as the Hallmark deadline approaches? Remember, many hands make light work. Chapter Hallmark awards applications shouldn’t be completed by just one or two people – instead it takes a team to complete projects, document, write, proofread and submit entries.

The Hallmark Awards process is more than just a way to receive recognition, but also a way to bring your chapter together to catalog and celebrate your success.

Find inspiration for your team in this article from Inc. of 15 memorable quotes about teamwork. Then, take advantage of these resources available to you on the Phi Theta Kappa website:
