The President’s Education Awards Program was founded in 1983. Every year since then, the program has provided our nation’s elementary, middle and high schools with the opportunity to recognize graduating students who meet high standards of academic excellence (4.0 GPA) and those who have given their best effort, often overcoming obstacles to their learning.
