Instructions for Students

Individual Applicant:

Two recommendations for each individual student applicant are required. 


A team must have two recommendations submitted for them as a group.  This means the adult giving a recommendation should know every member of the team.

Recommendations may come from teachers, coaches, counselors, other adult leaders of a club, or extracurricular activities in which the student(s) are involved. The only limitation is that the adult CANNOT be related to any student or live in the same household.


Tips and Suggestions

Let the person you ask know that this recommendation is important to you and what participation in this program would mean to you personally.  When asking for a recommendation:

1.  Please give the adult you ask AMPLE time to complete the recommendation.

2.  Be sure to select adults who know your thinking skills and talents, and who are impressed with you personally.

3.  When asking a teacher, select one who gives you detailed, written feedback on tests, papers, homework grades, reports, etc. These teachers are more likely to make an extra effort in completing your recommendation.

4.  Let the adult know where to get the forms and how to submit (see above).
