The Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2001 Scholar Attitude Award. Fourteen (14) students from across the state who attend IESA member schools were selected by a panel of judges and will be honored with a luncheon.

The luncheon will be held on Thursday, April 26, at the Radisson Hotel in Bloomington starting at 11:00 a.m. The 14 award winners, two guests of each award winner, and the school principal will be guests of the IESA to recognize this tremendous accomplishment. All award winners will receive a plaque, an award medallion, and a $100.00 savings bond. Mr. Bernie Saggau, Executive Director of the Iowa High School Athletic Association, will be the guest speaker.

In order to be eligible for consideration, a student from an IESA member school must be of 8th grade status, have a minimum grade-point-average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, must have participated in at least one IESA activity during each year of their two-year junior high career, and demonstrated outstanding citizenship during their junior high tenure. In addition, each student was required to submit a typed essay titled "The Value of Sportsmanship."

Only one student from each IESA member school was eligible for consideration. One student from each of the 14 IESA Board of Directors geographic membership divisions was selected. Over 100 applications were received.

"The students selected for our third annual Scholar Attitude Award represent the finest junior high school students in the state of Illinois," said IESA Executive Director Steve Endsley. "The tradition of naming a Scholar Attitude award started in 1999 and that first group of students selected set the expectation bar at a high level. This year's class has met the challenge and has demonstrated their abilities in the classroom, on the playing fields, and in their communities. It is refreshing to see that the youth of Illinois are preparing for their high school careers and beyond. Our judges had a difficult time selecting only 14 students. These students will be the leaders of tomorrow."
