Who is eligible to receive the President's Education Awards?

Elementary, middle and high school students are eligible to be considered for one of the following President's Education Awards:

  • The President's Award for Educational Excellence - recognizes a student's academic success in the classroom.
  • The President's Award for Educational Achievement  - recognizes students who show outstanding educational growth, improvement, commitment to or intellectual development in their academic subjects - but do not meet the criteria for the President's Award for Educational Excellence.

    This Achievement award should not be compared to the President's Award for Educational Excellence or be seen as a second tier award; it recognizes a very different type of academic achievement.  It is meant to encourage and reward students who work hard and give their best effort in school, often in the face of special obstacles to learning.
