Two Parkway Students Receive State Citizenship Award
Two Parkway students--Alec Sydlow (left) of South High and Allison Silverstein (right) of Central High--were among 15 public high school students recently honored by the State Board of Education and Governor Nixon as recipients of the 2009 Outstanding Achievement in Citizenship Award.
The Missouri Legislature established the citizenship award in 1990. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education conducts the award program annually with assistance and financial support from The Missouri Bar. Every public high school is eligible to nominate one senior.
Students are selected on the basis of their academic achievement in civics and government courses, performance in civics and government-related extracurricular activities and exemplary community service. Students also must submit an essay about the importance of citizenship.
