Phi Theta Kappa students compete internationally with Hallmark Essays. Prior to 2012, Hallmarks were done on the 4 Pillar Hallmarks. Starting in 2012, students completed 2 major projects for their chapter:
Honors in Action is a research-based report to meet the needs of the community through an action-oriented service project. This is weighted heavily for the overall chapter.
College Project is aimed around working with administration to meet the needs on campus through an action-oriented project.
