Student Council School of Excellence Award

Remembering that this is not a competition but that the goal of this program is to recognize student councils for outstanding participation in the following areas: community service, student leadership, citizenship, and school spirit.

Schools participating in this prestigious award program receive a Certificate of Excellence and recognition in NAESP’s publications and website, www.naesp.org.
