    2019 Winner:

    Bea Dubois


    CLEVELAND, OH – June 12, 2019 – The National Greek Awards™ hosted its annual #GraduatingGreeks Feature Week™ Photo Contest, which features members of multiple Greek-letter organizations who have graduated from college this fiscal year.  In this 2019 competition, it again made contest history.

    Bea Dubois; 2019 #GraduatingGreeks Feature Week™ WINNER, member of Sigma Gamma Rho® Sorority, Inc., and graduate of Liberty University.

    Normally the contest starts off slow with voting.  This year, the votes shot out the gate, and that was primarily due to the ferocious competitive nature of the contestants.  Never before has the competition had as many lead changes. However, that wasn’t even close to the biggest piece of contest news.

    This 2019 competition had close to 50% more votes than the previous year, and even that didn’t compare to the voting percentages of the contestants themselves. This year’s contest winner garnered over 90% more votes than her predecessor and is not only the first person to reach more than 1,000 votes, but she also accumulated more votes than anyone in the history of the competition.

    Kory Calhoun; 2019 #GraduatingGreeks Feature Week™ Runner-Up (2nd Place Winner), member of Alpha Phi Alpha® Fraternity, Inc., and graduate of University of Mississippi.

    I am beyond humbled and honored to win the 2019 National Greek Awards™ #GraduatingGreeks Feature Week™. I first heard about the contest in 2017 when my soror Amanda competed and won. So when it was my turn to graduate, I knew I had to sign up,” says Bea Dubois, a member of Sigma Gamma Rho® Sorority, Inc. and the 2019 #GraduatingGreeks Feature Week™ Photo Contest winner.

    She continued, “Greeks are always shown in a negative light so I asked my friend to take my graduation photos with my Greek stole. I was surprised to know that I received over 1,050 votes as I was only expecting a few hundred. The votes came in slowly but I’m glad that everything worked out in the end. I am thankful to be a part of an amazing sorority and to have an amazing circle of friends, family, classmates, fellow Greeks who helped me win.”

    An amazing circle indeed.

    It was such a rush watching this year’s contest. I’d never seen two front-runners going so hard for their votes. It was amazing and awe-inspiring,” said National Greek Awards™ Founder and Executive Director Tim Carthon, “In the end, out of thousands of votes, Ms. Dubois literally won by only 12 votes. By far, that’s the closest contest win we’ve ever had. It was an absolutely fantastic and positive battle. A big shout out and thank you to our contest sponsor SBIWinners.com.”

    Bethany White; 2019 #GraduatingGreeks Feature Week™ 3rd Place Winner, member of Alpha Kappa Alpha® Sorority, Inc., and graduate of North Carolina Central University.

    It was definitely a battle for the contest ages.  In the end, the wins that mattered most for our 1st-Place Finisher were her educational and career wins. Ms. Dubois received her Masters of Public Health degree from Liberty University and plans on a career as a Cancer Research Scientist. 

    The mission of the National Greek Awards™ is to positively change the entire social structure of Greek-letter organizations worldwide.  You can see the Greek-letter organization Students from this year and all years prior featured on the National Greek Awards’ Facebook®Twitter®, and Instagram® social media pages (@GreekAwards).  The graduation photos featured will also be included in the Greek life photos section on GreekAwards.com and you can watch this year’s winner’s feature video story below:

    CLEVELAND, OH – August 04, 2018 – The National Greek Awards™ 2018 #GraduatingGreeks Feature Week™ was a fierce competition and had more votes cast in it than any previous Greek life photo contest they’ve ever had.  Greek-life graduates from all over the U.S. submitted the photos that they believed showcased them in the best, most positive and creative light.  And, in the end, it represented an amazing accomplishment: The earning of a higher education degree.

    Like last year, this year’s GGFW Contest included over 100 contestant photos from multiple Greek-letter organizations and all walks of life from around the U.S.A.

    This is one of the best things we do.  Greek-life has had such bad luck these past few years with negative PR that showcasing these members in the true light of Greek-letter organizations; education, community service, etc. has become an actual necessity,” said National Greek Awards™ Founder and Executive Director Tim Carthon, “Fortunately, we’ve been blessed with the task of leading the way in doing that, and we even had a little help with our new sponsor this year, SBIWinners.com, that sponsored the $100 shopping spree for us to give to the winner.

    Speaking of the winner, this year’s contest winner is a graduate of Northwestern State University.

    I was pretty ecstatic to know that I had won the contest,” says Forrest Middlebrook, Jr., a member of Alpha Phi Alpha® Fraternity, Inc. and the 2018 Graduating Greeks Feature Week™ Contest winner, “It was exciting to know that I could potentially help others by talking about my college experience.  Thank you NGA!

    He also has a very specific career goal that is actually in line with a subject matter that is currently resonating across the country and highlighted specifically in the political sphere.

    My future career goals include obtaining a Master’s Degree in business and one day working in the healthcare field.  I want to be the person behind the scenes to make sure that everybody in America has the best healthcare that they can possibly afford.

    Like we said, very specific.  Watch his story below.

    Throughout the years, one of the things that has always bothered me the most was watching individuals on social media share negative, non-educational posts, like fight videos,” says Tim Carthon, GASA Founder and Executive Director, Through our Graduating Greeks Feature Week™, we share the educational achievements and positive images of young scholars, and, as a showcase, we repeat it several times a day for that week.  That’s using the power of your platform for a better mankind, not to spread disturbing visuals of human behavior at its lowest.  I’m so proud of all of the graduates for the positive force they helped us unleash upon humanity and look forward to their amazing post-collegiate contributions to the world.
