High School Leadership Awards

The awards recognize the region’s high school students who embody Widener’s commitment to develop and inspire leaders who affect positive change.  

Next Steps

Principals and administrators in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware are encouraged to select one current high school junior who exhibits strong leadership skills, academic excellence, and exceptional character by completing the HSLA Principal Selection Form. The deadline to submit a selection has been extended to Friday, December 15, 2023.

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.

Only one high school junior in good academic standing is eligible to be selected from each school. Students may be selected even if the school does not calculate GPA. Principals and administrators must submit the Principal Selection Form.
