  2. Distribute a copy of the application instruction sheet to each interested student.

  3. Review completed applications online between November 10 and 20, 2020.

  4. Select one middle level Local Honoree, and, if desired, as many as two runners for every 1,000 young people in grades 5-8 in your school or local organization and/or one high school Local Honoree and up to two runners for every 1,000 young people in grades 9-12 (see Selecting Honorees).

  5. Certify your designated Local Honoree(s) online and nominate him/her/them for state-level judging by 11:59p.m. CST on Friday, November 20.

  6. Announce and recognize your Local Honoree(s) and runners-up (see Recognizing Honorees).
