|Congressman Jim Banks has created the “Rising Hoosier Award” to recognize a special group of deserving high school students in the Third District who demonstrate the potential to become extraordinary members of society through their acts of selfless service to fellow classmates or the community. This is not an athletic or scholastic achievement award (which are properly recognized by other awards), but instead is an award to recognize that “Good Samaritan” in your school who might otherwise go unnoticed and to inspire the recipient or others to even greater community service.
Each year, we will the invite the principal or counselor in every high school in our district to nominate one boy and one girl to be considered for the Rising Hoosier Award, which would be presented at the school’s Spring Awards Ceremony, typically by a member of Congressman Banks’ district staff. Note, this is not a monetary award. Nominations forms are distributed in March and will be due April 15, 2019. For more information call 260-702-4750.
