History & Philanthropy Poster Challenge

Kappa Epsilon will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in just a few short years. A lot has happened over these years and we want to take time to recognize our rich history and highlight chapter events.

Last biennium we asked all chapters to create posters that described the first half of their chapter history. This biennium, the Fraternity is again challenging all chapters to showcase the second part of their chapter history (up to present) as well as highlight the chapter’s philanthropic endeavors. We want to memorialize one of the great pillars of our fraternal bond: service.

They will be displayed during the 2019 KE Convention in Charleston, SC. These posters are going to be incredibly important, because the information you share could be used in a book being written to celebrate KE’s 100th anniversary. We also want to be able to share your chapter’s personality so these posters may be converted to an electronic scrapbook.
