provincechallengeThe first seven weeks of Lou’s Olympics are also a Phi Delta Theta province challenge. The winning chapter from each province will advance to the next round - Lou's Olympic Challenge - and will receive a commemorative bat head trophy with the Lou’s Olympics logo inscribed in it.

The winning chapter within each province will be the chapter that has the highest value for dollars raised per undergraduate chapter member. For example, a 75-man chapter that raises $10,000 would have a value of $133.33. Iron Phi fundraising by undergraduates (including Phikeias) and alumni is all included in the chapter’s results. To win the province qualifier and advance to the next round, a chapter’s participants must raise at least $4,444 during this timeframe.

Wild Cards - If a chapter does not win its province qualifer but raises $4,444+, they will also advance to the second round and receive the bat head trophy.
