2015-16 Student Encouragement Awards Program

The Student Encouragement Awards Program is designed to recognize minority students who have made significant academic and social improvements during the 2015-16 school year. At times students have made significant improvements and yet do not merit the standing of “top” honors, such as highest grades or 100% attendance. MMABSE believes that these students should also be recognized at this time of the year, and it is with this intention of granting recognition to these students that this award was created.

Eligibility Any Milwaukee Public Schools student, who is a minority group member, is eligible to be recommended by his or her school leader. There will be one award per school site (K-5, K-6, K-8, and middle schools, including regular and alternative sites. High schools are not included. The awardee must be at the “exiting” grade from the building; e.g., in a K-5 or K-6 building, the student would be in the 5th or 6th grade, in a middle school, the student would be in the 8th grade.

The selected student should have shown improvements in three of the following categories:

1. Personal growth and development

2. Attendance

3. Self-discipline

4. Academic achievement

5. Service to the school/community

Timeline the deadline for recommendations is Wednesday, March 30, 2016.
