The program is an opportunity to recognize outstanding students who are enrolled in public, private, or charter schools throughout the state.
The annual honors are given to one outstanding fifth, eighth, and twelfth grade student based on their leadership, academic performance, achievements, citizenship, and service to the school and community. Students are selected by their school and submitted to the local education agency/diocese level. Nominees are forwarded to a Regional Selection Committee. The resulting 18 finalists compete at the state level.
