The Southeastern Utah SterMonticello High School will host the annual Southeastern Utah Sterling Scholar competition on March 6. Twenty-eight San Juan County seniors will vie for the coveted title of Sterling Scholar against 59 other seniors from Carbon, Emery and Grand counties. The awards program will begin at 5 p.m. at the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center Multipurpose Room on the USU-Eastern Campus in Price. The public is invited to attend.

The Southeastern Utah Sterling Scholars is presented in cooperation with district officials and high school administrators as well as colleges and universities who support the program through the offer of scholarships and other financial assistance. This year's event will be judged by members of faculties from the USU-Eastern, Utah Valley University, and other educational and professional organizations throughout Southeastern Utah.

The program recognizes high school seniors for scholastic excellence in 12 major categories--English; speech/drama; mathematics; social science; science; foreign language; visual arts; technology and trades; family and consumer sciences; business and marketing; music; and general scholarship.

Nine secondary schools-Navajo Mountain High School, Monument Valley High School, Whitehorse High School, San Juan High School, Monticello High School, Grand County High School, Green River High School, Emery High School, and Carbon High School--participate in the Southeastern Utah Sterling Scholar competition. Similar contests are held in other geographic areas of the state.

Nominees are judged on scholarship, leadership, citizenship, and character. Each nominee prepares a 16 page personal portfolio outlining his or her scholastic and extracurricular accomplishments. In addition to the portfolio, nominees will be interviewed by three judges in their respective categories.

After judges examine the portfolios and interview each nominee, a winner and two runners-up are selected in each category. Winners will receive $300 and runners-up $100. Utah colleges, universities, and technical schools also offer full or part tuition scholarships to winners and runners-up.
