Unsung Hero Award
“HEROES LIVE QUIETLY AMONG US AND WE SHOULD RECOGNIZE THEM.”
Do you know a classmate with some special qualities? One who has faced some unique circumstances or challenges? One who has put the needs of others ahead of his/her own? One who has inspired or motivated you in a positive way that is not typically recognized or rewarded?
The “Unsung Hero” will win a $2000 Scholarship
The Nominator will win a $1000 Scholarship
This award is given to a student who possesses some very special qualities; someone who has faced unique circumstances or challenges, or has been a positive inspiration to others.
The nominee and nominator must both be members of the senior graduating class.
To apply, submit a 300-400 word essay nominating your “Unsung Hero”.
Be sure to:
- Tell us why you admire him/her.
- Explain why they are an Unsung Hero – a person who makes a substantive yet unrecognized contribution; a person whose strength of character is unknown or unacknowledged.
Essays should be submitted in the Guidance Office (typically due in early March).
Please check back early next year for the 2019 application!
