Selection of recipients is a two-stage process. The first stage will be the selection of finalists.
Primary consideration will be given to the applicant’s non-academic outstanding achievement as described in the online application essays when selecting finalists. The achievement may be a long-term achievement, an activity or a project that occurred in their school, in the community or the workplace. Other extracurricular activities in school and community, work experience, and the applicant’s academic record over the past four years will be considered when selecting finalists.
Finalists will be notified by email and asked to submit further information including a current transcript of grades and an appraisal from an unrelated adult who is closely involved with your achievement and knowledgeable about your accomplishments. The primary consideration of recipients will be given to the finalist’s demonstrated achievement as reported on the application and supported by the appraisal completed by an adult who is not related to the applicant.
All finalists and recipients are selected by Michael Moody Fitness. All decisions are final and are not subject to appeal. The program is competitive; not all applicants will be selected as finalists; not all finalists will be selected as recipients.
