Know a high-achieving student? Then get him or her recognized! The nomination period for The Fresno Bee’s 20th annual Academic All-Stars has been extended to Wednesday, April 15.
Academic All-Stars is intended to shine a spotlight on children’s accomplishments in the central San Joaquin Valley. Students are evaluated on academic achievement, community involvement and leadership within and outside of school.
Every student in grades 1 through 12 is eligible for nomination. Parents, teachers, mentors and others are encouraged to complete the Academic All-Stars form to put a student into consideration. The nomination form is available online only. You can see recent All-Stars and find a link to the nomination form at www.fresnobee.com/academic-all-stars.
A winner and runners-up will be recognized in each grade. Again this year, grade winners will receive a family four-pack for a visit to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo, courtesy of the zoo.
Each first-place winner will be profiled in a short story published in The Bee after Memorial Day, and the names of all nominees will appear on www.fresnobee.com.
Previous winners are not eligible for All-Star status, but their names may be published as nominees. Nominations must be received no later than Wednesday, April 15.
Note: Carefully follow the nomination form instructions and fill out all of the fields as requested. In particular, be careful choosing the student’s grade level — this is the only way that students are separated for judging.
