Most of it has been a joy as we have enjoyed the enthusiastic responses from students and their families. Some has been unfortunate as we had do deal with some plagiarism, which is always taken very seriously at HonorsGradU.
We especially love it when it works out to surprise our recipients with the news.
Xelah Baca, creator of BHS Recycle, received the news from her mentor during an awards ceremony:
And I was able to fly down to surprise Anthony Neil Tan with the news that he was selected as our top recipient during his senior awards night for his creation of the Maker Hub Club:
Check out the newly updated Past Winners page to view all 5 students’ prototypes, reflection videos, and colleges. We look forward to sharing more about the background of these 5 outstanding students this summer, and to seeing Anthony’s project grow with another fully funded iteration. Thank you again for your efforts to design a better future!
For you incoming seniors, be sure to stay tuned for the details at the end of the summer on our 2020 scholarship program!
