A Sterling Scholar is a high school senior who is publicly recognized and awarded for his or her pursuit of excellence in scholarship, leadership and citizenship in the State of Utah. A potential Sterling Scholar presents an all-encompassing portfolio on his or her work in a specific category and during the later stages of the competition is interviewed by judges in the category’s field. Sterling Scholars are awarded at the high school, regional, and state levels. During the awards ceremony at the school and state level the finalists are announced.
It is time once again to choose Bingham’s Sterling Scholars. Seniors—official application forms are now available online. Seniors may apply to be a Sterling Scholar in any of 14 categories (one application per category). Winners will be announced at the Sterling Scholar Assembly (December). Finalists will go on to participate in the state Sterling Scholar competition in February.
