ACE Awards Nominations for 8th Graders

ACE Awards

The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) was created by Greg Blatt, Founder and Executive Director of Coaches 4 Character.  It is an annual award given to 66 male and female students from each of the 33 Greenville County middle and high schools.  This award is designed to honor true "unsung heroes" who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments.  The selection process, established by Greenville County school counselors, focuses on identifying and selecting students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another but have accomplished great things in the community, church or school.  If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th or 12th grader, please complete and submit this nomination form HERE or go on-line to www.c4caceawards.com.  All nominations must be submitted by January 30, 2015.  An ACE Awards Advisory Committee at each school will choose semi-finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award.  One male and one female will be chosen from each middle and high school in Greenville County.  ACE award recipients will be recognized at the ACE Awards ceremony on May 21, 2015.
