National Achievement Week History
National Achievement Week is a mandated program of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. celebrated in remembrance of Omega's Founding Date, November 17. National Achievement Week was originally designed to promote the study of African American life and history. It's beginnings date back to the 1920 Grand Conclave in Nashville. It was at this Conclave that Bro. Carter G. Woodson inspired the overall idea. In 1927, at his urging, the Fraternity made National Negro Achievement Week an annual observance. In 1976, this commemoration evolved into Black History Month. Presently, the Achievement Week Program is used to recognize those individuals at the local and national levels who have made significant contributions toward improving the quality of life for African Americans.
Originally designed to promote the study of Negro life and history. Achievement Week is observed in November of each year and is designed to seek out and give due recognition to those individuals at the local and international levels who have made a noteworthy contribution toward improving the quality of life for black Americans.
A High School Essay Contest is to be held in conjunction with Achievement Week. This contest is open to all college-bound high school seniors. College scholarships are awarded to the winners, each of whom must submit an essay on a theme/topic chosen by the fraternity. This contest is a phase of the International Achievement Week observance.
Each year Theta Alpha & Nu Kappa chapters of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. in the Southern Sector of the Dallas Area give scholarships to financially challenged students and helped the under-served community through programs like the annual Toy Drive with the YMCA, Toys for Tots, Holiday Food Baskets, and our Male Mentorship Program to name a few.
Theta Alpha is a Graduate Chapter located in Dallas and Nu Kappa is an Undergraduate chapter located on the campus of Southern Methodist University.
