This awards program is open to any students currently enrolled in high school in Phoenix or live within Phoenix city limits; residents in Anthem residing west of I-17 would be eligible to apply.
Here's how it works:
- One young man and one young woman will be selected as winners from each city council district and receive an award of $500.
- In addition, each district-level winner will be eligible for an additional $1,500 award if they are selected as the citywide winners. Students interested in applying will need to write an essay, submit a recommendation letter and proof of legal residence in the United States.
- Finalists will be interviewed by members of the community. District award winners will be invited to a luncheon sponsored by Rotary 100, Arizona Public Service, and Salt River Project where the citywide award winners will be announced.
- Eligible students can apply through the online application form located at phoenix.gov/education before 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26, 2021.
