- The "99 Hands Award" for its community outreach initiatives, including members volunteering to provide immunizations, wellness screenings and health information translation services at a primary care prevention health fair at Vietnam Buddhist Center in Sugar Land;
- "Chapter Report of the Year Award" for most professional and creative presentation; and
- The "Man Mile Award" for the most members (34 Delta Delta members out of 71 total attendees from 14 chapters) at the meeting.
