SECTION IV  - SELECTION OF AWARD RECIPIENTS

  1. Recipients will be chosen anonymously by the Scholastic Awards Committee on the basis of school activities, academic achievements and non-school activities as indicated on this application.   Students should indicate whether their parents or grandparents are members of the Nicholas G. Beram Veterans Association or veterans of the U.S. armed forces.  (Please do not submit letters of recommendation, etc.).
  2. Read this application carefully, and when presenting information for each category (i.e. Academic Achievements, School Activities, etc.), write ONLY about that category separately, and do not combine categories in one statement

STUDENT ATTENDANCE AT AWARDS BANQUET

Many of our generous award sponsors attend the November banquet and look forward to presenting their award personally to the recipient.  It is embarrassing to the sponsor and the N. G. Beram Veterans Association when the recipient or his/her representative is not at the banquet.  Therefore it is expected that the award recipient or his/her representative will attend the banquet. 

FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS COURTESY COULD FORFEIT THE AWARD.

Keep a copy of all application materials for your records.
