Principals and administrators in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware are encouraged to nominate one current high school junior who exhibits strong leadership skills, academic excellence, and exceptional character by completing the HSLA Nomination Form. The deadline to submit a nomination is Friday, December 16, 2022.

Leadership and a commitment to foster positive change in the school and community can be shown through activities such as taking a leadership role in extracurricular activities, volunteering for a purpose, and/or demonstrating an intentional positive influence on their peers and associates.
