Amount of Award:
First place is a one time, non-renewable, minimum award of $3,000 will be paid to the school for which the recipient provides proof of enrollment. Additional awards may be made at the discretion of the judges and Board of Directors.

  • Proof of loss in the form of a copy of the death certificate, or equivalent legal document, is required.

  • The student must be enrolled in a public or private high school in Palm Beach or Martin County, Florida.

  • Financial need is not a consideration.

Judging will be based on each applicant’s overall prior and continuing achievements, including activity in school organizations, the community, and athletics, as well as their academic record, and interviews in which the applicants will discuss their career plans and personal aspirations.
