The Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2013 Scholar Attitude Award. One student from each of the 15 IESA membership divisions was selected by a panel of judges and will be honored with a luncheon on Tuesday, April 30, at the Doubletree Hotel and Conference Center in Bloomington. The luncheon ceremony will begin at 11:00 a.m.

The 15 award winners, two guests of each award winner, and the school principal will be guests of the IESA at the luncheon. All award winners will receive a plaque, an award medallion, a gift card, and a DVD of the day's events. Mr. Stephen Bargatze, of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association, will be the guest speaker.

To be considered, a student from an IESA member school must be of 8th grade status, have a minimum grade-point-average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, must have participated in at least one IESA activity during each year of their two-year junior high career, and demonstrated outstanding citizenship during their junior high tenure. In addition, each student is required to submit a typed essay titled "The Value of Sportsmanship."

"I am pleased to announce the 2013 IESA Scholar Attitude Award Winners," said Steve Endsley, IESA Executive Director. "These 15 students represent the very essence of junior high school interscholastic activities. They have excelled in the classroom, on the athletic fields, in fine arts activities, and have demonstrated outstanding leadership in their communities. This is the 15th year of the program and I am continually amazed at the caliber of students who win this award. It is indeed an honor to be associated with students who have achieved so much and are so prepared for their high school careers and beyond."
