Jan. 31 is the deadline for applications to the Princeton Prize in Race Relations, a prize that seeks to recognize and reward high school students who are positively impacting race relations in their schools, neighborhoods or communities.
Students in grades nine through 12 are encouraged to apply.
Students must complete and submit — online or by mail — part one of the application form, available at pprize.princeton.edu/apply. Part two of the application must be submitted by the student’s sponsor. Sponsors may be any adult, not related to the student, who is familiar with the activity being put forth for the award. Sponsors can include teachers, advisers, community leaders, or religious leaders.
Rochester is one of 27 Princeton Prize communities across the U.S., and this is the
13th year as a Princeton Prize community. Rochester has a $1,000 prize to award to the local student whose leadership has had the most significant impact on race relations.
