Applications for Student Recognition Project now open

SRVUSD to award exemplary work in 23 distinct categories

Students in San Ramon Valley schools can now apply for the district’s annual Student Recognition Project.

The recognition, coordinated by the school district and sponsored by Chevron, awards students for exemplary projects and performances in a variety of fields, from design to music.

“The purpose of the program is to create collaboration among students, educators and the business community in the San Ramon Valley, to promote educational excellence and to prepare students for the business world of the 21st century,” district officials said in a statement.

The online applications, required for all categories, are due Feb. 16. Auditions for the performing arts and presentation categories are to be held over the week of Feb. 26 to March 1, while all physical project submissions should be submitted by 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 2 to students’ respective schools.

The only categories with projects submitted online are video production and journalism. Students can enter their work into multiple categories, but can only submit one entry per category.

Local professionals with experience in the respective categories will judge student projects. Student winners will be announced March 12 at the Student Recognition Project open house, and will be honored at an awards reception.
