As a sisterhood we host several fundraisers and events to support two incredible organizations! Keep reading to learn a little about each of them!
OSU STEM Academy
This organization is a non-profit program that is dedicated to increased education and interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in elementary, middle and high schools. OSU STEM Academy hosts camps and classes right on the OSU campus. We are a proud sponsor of not only OSU STEM Academy, but their scholarship program that helps make STEM education accessible to more members of the Corvallis community. The members of Sigma Delta Omega have the incredible opportunity to serve as leaders and mentors for the Advocates for Women in Science, Engineering and Math (AWSEM) club that is specially designed to create a safe space for young girls exploring a passion in science. On top of volunteering as mentors, SDO also hosts several fundraisers such as the Fall-O'ween porch decoration competition, Jamba cards, and Annual Trivia Night during Winter Term. Proceeds from each of these events goes to the OSU STEM Academy!
OUR 2023 TRIVIA WINNERS
ResearcHERS is a campaign and movement run by the American Cancer Society. It is focused on women-led cancer research. Science and research has been a male dominated field for far too long. ResearcHERS campaign was developed to encourage and support women that are working in cancer research in order to help these women get the recognition they deserve, but more importantly to promote cancer research to someday find a cure to cancers. Sigma Delta Omega is a proud Ambassador of the Oregon and South West Washington branch of ResearcHERS. We host Periodic Table of Cookies which is a cookie sale on the OSU campus each Spring to help raise money for this incredible initiative.
SDO had the honor of partnering with ATO to host a joint-philanthropy event in the Spring of 2023. This event included participating chapters filming original short films or popular movie scenes as well as individuals having the opportunity to participate in SDO's yearly raffle.
Congratulations to TKE, the overall film-festival winners!!!!
