The names of the Spokane Scholars Foundation Award recipients have been released following the 26th-annual Spokane Scholars Foundation Banquet the evening of Monday, April 16, at the Spokane Convention Center.

A total of $60,000 was awarded to 24 of the 148 Spokane Scholars, four students in each of the six content areas: English, Fine Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and World Languages.

The Spokane Scholars Foundation is dedicated to recognizing the exceptional academic achievement of high school seniors from the Spokane area.

Students complete an application following selection in one of the six content areas by their high school principal, counselor or teachers. Three judges for each category review the blind applications to determine the four award recipients in each content area.

All 148 scholars are awarded a Spokane Scholars Foundation Medal of Academic Achievement and certificate, and a congratulatory letter from US Congresswoman Cathy McMorris-Rodgers of the 5th District of Washington.

Fifteen institutions of higher education in the region will match the monetary awards of $1,000 to $4,000.
