The Junior Book Awards honor students who stand out from their peers as leaders within the classroom, their community, and through clubs and activities. Many of these awards are sponsored by colleges and include books that hold a special meaning to the college or may be authored by an alum.
Please join us in congratulating our Juniors for this amazing honor!
They've done it again! 100% college acceptance into four-year colleges and universities AND they have been awarded over $13.5 million in scholarships over four years from the institutions where they applied!
