Abraham Lincoln Civic Engagement Award
Each fall, an outstanding senior from each of the four-year degree-granting institutions of higher learning in Illinois is awarded the Abraham Lincoln Civic Engagement Award and thereby becomes a Student Laureate of The Lincoln Academy of Illinois.
Student Laureates are honored for their overall excellence in curricular and co-curricular activities. The student must be in their senior year and have a cumulative and major GPA of not less than 3.00.
The award recipient will attend a special ceremony held in the House of Representatives of the Illinois State Capital in Springfield, Illinois where they will be presented with the Lincoln Academy Student Laureate Medallion, a certificate of achievement and the Abraham Lincoln Civic Engagement award in the amount of $1,000.
The deadline to submit a nomination is noon on Monday, September 29, 2014. All nominations must be submitted online.
