Thank you for participating in this year's Great Lakes Scholars application process and using our online Nomination Form.

Great Lakes Scholars has been established to allow students the opportunity to receive positive affirmation for what is so important at this age: a willingness and excitement to learn, a desire to be involved, and an enthusiasm towards community service.

• Spread the word to your colleagues who teach in grades 3-8 and send them to this web page.

• Students are nominated to be Great Lakes Scholars by their teacher. Each teacher may nominate any student that they feel meets the criteria stated in the fourth bullet below. We do not accept nominations from anyone other than teachers, counselors or principals. (Parents may not nominate their children).

• After nominating a student, letters will be sent to you to forward to your students. At that time, they will formally have the opportunity to apply to be named a Great Lakes Scholar. There is no charge for the student to receive this designation. A book will be compiled with an "honor roll" featuring the names of all Great Lakes Scholars plus a short biography on each student.

• Nominated students should hold at least a B average. The student should exhibit good character and be a well-rounded person, involved in the extra-curriculars or activities outside of school.

Please complete the following form and press the SUBMIT button. You should receive a confirmation email upon successful submission.
