Is there a deserving senior you would like to nominate?

Peace Scholarship Award

Peace Scholarships for one thousand dollars ($1,000) are available for students who are graduating this year.  If you know of a senior who has contributed to promoting peace or understanding in our school, community or wider area you can nominate them for this scholarship.  The congregations below initiated this scholarship program several years ago as a means to promote peaceful, non-violent relationships in the schools and beyond.  Outstanding efforts have been recognized each year, some for students who have been in such programs as peer mediation and multicultural clubs, and some for students who have acted in less formal settings to resolve conflicts or build cooperation. Any adult or student who works with any high school senior in any capacity in school or community may submit a nomination. The nominee is not required to be a member of any church or religious organization.  A representative committee will select students to interview from those who are nominated.  Recipients will be announced at the annual Scholarship Awards Night.  A nominatingform can be found by clicking here.  Please submit any nominations to the Guidance Office by April 4, 2014.
