Award for Extending George Washington’s Legacy of Service

The George Washington Mount Vernon Prize for Excellence in Civics and History is awarded to two student projects each year. Teachers and organization leaders can nominate eligible middle school and high school students who have applied their understanding of George Washington’s life to extend his legacy of public service within classrooms, schools, or community projects. The projects nominated for the Student of the Year award must be student-led; they can be from individual students or groups. In designing their projects, students can utilize many formats, including papers, flyers, posters, websites, documentaries, speeches, exhibits, and community programming.

A cash prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the winning middle school project; $5,000 will be awarded to the winning high school project. All winners will receive a Mount Vernon family membership. A cash prize of $500 will be awarded to the teachers of the winning students.

Deadline: Nominations should be received by May 31, 2022.
