The Rotary Club of St. Louis presented the Young Citizen Award to 28 deserving St. Louis Public School District high school seniors at the organizations weekly meeting on October 17, 2013. The award winners were nominated by their respective principals. The Rotary Club of St. Louis has now presented the Young Citizen Award for four years to SLPS seniors. The meeting was held at the Missouri Athletic Club in downtown St. Louis.
This award, funded through a grant provided by the Rotary Club of St. Louis to the St. Louis Public Schools Foundation, recognizes one female and one male student from each SLPS high school. The Young Citizen Award is presented to students who have excelled academically, maintained exemplary school attendance, exhibited good citizenship, and made significant community service contributions.
As awardees, students honored during the St. Louis Rotary Club luncheon are presented with a framed certificate signed by the St. Louis Rotary Club president, David Wicks. They also receive a $100 gift card.
