Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD) is the national honor society for sociology. The purpose of Alpha Kappa Delta is to recognize outstanding work by undergraduate students majoring in sociology who are in their junior or senior year and to provide a medium — the refereed journal Sociological Inquiry — through which scholarly work in sociology can be communicated to the scientific community. Alpha Kappa Delta sponsors an annual undergraduate paper competition and provides funds for student research projects and symposia. Membership in AKD is a nationally recognized mark of distinction for a student’s resume or application to graduate programs.
You can get more information about AKD at the webpage for the national office of AKD: http://alphakappadelta.org.
