Step 1. The first application seeks a record of the student‘s overall involvement in school and community affairs as well as academic success and employment. This application is due October 31 and culminates in the selection of Semifinalists in December. Applications are available at the start of the academic year through school guidance counselors.

Following the February 1 deadline, the Program Review Committee selects the Finalists. A more detailed application will be available online for those interested.
Step 3. In the spring of each program year, Finalists attend an awards ceremony. The location and time will be determined at a later time. We hope to involve the City of Monroe as well as the Monroe School District in the Ceremony.
