Scholastic Achievement

The Virginian-Pilot Scholastic Achievement Scholarship and Recognition Program recognizes outstanding academic achievement. 
providing recognition and financial resources to students with exceptional academic achievements, 
service and 
leadership, we are making an investment in the future of our community.

Each participating high school selected a team of up to 24 students, depending on school size, who excel in academics, citizenship, school activities and community service.
Each school had the opportunity to choose a senior to compete for one of The Pilot's two scholarships: $5,000 each.
Student achievements, career goals and college choices were reported through early March.

The judges' criteria included transcripts, test scores, curricula, leadership, service within the school and community, and financial circumstances.
Finalists were interviewed by a panel of judges. The scholarships are awarded directly to the colleges of the students' choice.
