Teachers and staff from schools within Addabbo’s district can nominate junior and senior high school students who excel not only academically, but also through extracurricular and volunteer activities.
There are four different award categories to nominate a student for: Academics, Athletics, Arts and Community Service.
Selected students will be awarded with a congratulatory certificate of recognition and their story will be shared on Addabbo’s website. Participating schools are invited to nominate a maximum of five junior or senior students for the program.
“This program is just a small way that we can honor the amazing students we have across New York State and recognize them for the great work that they have been doing in the classroom and in their communities for years,” Addabbo said. “In past years, some of our local students from my district have won this prestigious award, and I hope to see many of our local students nominated this year.”
A participation packet will be sent to eligible schools that informs faculty on how they can nominate students.
All nominations must be submitted online by April 2 by filling out the nomination form, and including a recommendation letter and the student’s brief statement about their accomplishments.
Nominations may come from teachers, administrators, counselors, or other school faculty members.
