HAVE YOU BEEN CALLED INNOVATIVE, CREATIVE, OR INSPIRATIONAL?
Have you taken great ideas and made them a reality? Are your projects making a positive difference in your community? Do you know any high schoolers that could answer yes to the above? If so, we want to recognize them!
The Celebrating High School Innovators event will honor high school students across Illinois who have been able to meet current and emerging social needs through innovation in one of five areas:
1) Arts, Media, & Literature
2) Business Entrepreneurship
3) Health & Nutrition
4) Social Entrepreneurship
These are not necessarily the students with perfect test scores or a 4.0 GPA, but those whose curiosity, creativity, passion, and dedication have led them to change their communities and have inspired those around them to do the same.
