The Silver Knight Award is a prestigious award that recognizes outstanding seniors. Nominees must have a 3.2 unweighted GPA and have used their knowledge and talents to contribute to the community and school. The award is primarily service driven. Community service must be consistent, meaningful and have a lasting impact. The Miami Herald created this award over 50 years ago and since its inception has awarded over $1 million in cash prizes to the recipients. This year we have fifteen nominees who have demonstrated leadership, academic excellence and a commitment to serving their community. Our nominees will go on to compete against other seniors in the county for the award.
