Kiwanis Honors Local Students
At the end of each school year, the Kingsport Kiwanis Boys and Girls Committee is responsible for obtaining and presenting scholarship and sportsmanship awards at fourteen schools in the Kingsport area. The awards are presented to deserving students in area elementary, middle and high schools. The students receiving these awards are chosen by each school using the criteria set forth by each individual school. The names are then given to our committee. Typically, awards are for highest grade point average, sportsmanship, science or outstanding citizenship. Each school is responsible for determining what the award will be given for. Our committee presents an individual plaque to each recipient and maintains a permanent plaque at each school. The awards are presented by club members at the end of the school year at each schools’ Honors Day Program.
