Annual Awards Ceremony

Since 1957, Washington-Lincoln Laurels for Leaders has hosted an annual celebration for high school Associated Student Body (ASB) Presidents to honor their outstanding leadership and service to our community. This event includes workshops on leadership development and financial education as well as a celebration luncheon featuring these young leaders surrounded by their parents, educators and community leaders. We also create opportunities for these students to involve their schools in a community-wide service project.

This year’s celebration will feature a virtual after-school event on Tuesday February 23rd at 3pm, featuring former White House Physician Dr. Connie Mariano. Supporters will be invited to join this virtual event, which will also include an ASB President roll call in tandem with presentation of $250 cash awards to each attending ASB President in recognition of their outstanding school and community contributions.

All ASB Presidents are invited to be our guest at the Virtual Awards Ceremony. Any other guests at our virtual event are limited to our Laurels for Leaders Society! Join today to be a part of our special Virtual Awards Ceremony. All family members, ASB Advisors and Principals are invited to view the event live on Facebook and Youtube.
