Sisters of ZTA at the 2008 Reinhard Awards
Each spring, Clarion University's Reinhard Awards Ceremony is held to recognize the out-of-class accomplishments of students and registered student organizations.
Four individual awards are presented to members of the Greek community annually - Greek Man of the Year, Greek Woman of the Year, Panhellenic Council Outstanding Senior Award, and Interfraternity Council Outstanding Senior Award. Judging is based on a student's contributions toward their own fraternity or sorority and toward the Greek community as a whole, as well as their service, leadership, and scholastic accomplishments.
The 2011-2012 academic year winners were:
- Greek Man of the Year -
- Greek Woman of the Year -
- PHC Outstanding Senior -
- IFC Outstanding Senior -
In addition, the winners of the Greek Games are announced at the Reinhard Awards. The Greek Games are a year-long, friendly competition between fraternities and sororities, including events such as flag football, volleyball, academic bowl, dodgeball, Greek Olympics and the annual Greek Sing performance.

The Northeast Greek Leadership Association is an annual conference that the Clarion Inter Fraternity Council and Panhellenic Council attend to meet with their national representatives and bring innovative ideas and speakers to Clarion University's Greek Life. In 2011 the attendees made goals based upon their experience at the NGLA conference and the result of their goals was the Greek Retreat in the Fall 2011. The Retreat committee focused their attentions upon the community's disconnect between chapters, councils, and larger Clarion community. Through workshops on communication, organization, and positive image, the representatives who attended the Greek Retreat began the change necessary to create the flow for an effective and successful Greek Community. In 2012 the Greek Retreat committee was recognized at the NGLA conference for their efforts with the Amy Vojta Impact Award for Chapter Development and Leadership. The Greek Community is continuing to grown, assess for change, and look for future goals!
The Panhellenic Council rewards three deserving sorority women with a scholarship to assist with their chapter dues. The application process begins with considerations to the women's leadership, academics, and financial need. The scholarship has been awarded to these three women during the Reinhard Awards each spring.
