Lone Star Leadership Academy Accepting Outstanding Student Nominations

Nominate your outstanding 4th-8th graders for summer 2021 Lone Star Leadership Academy camps! Participants travel to the Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin/San Antonio, or Houston/Galveston area to join delegations of other distinguished students from across Texas for a week of fun, learning, leadership development, and visits to significant Texas destinations. Each day participants explore notable Texas sites, learn about unique careers from professionals, and work in small groups to develop specific leadership skills. In addition to improving their leadership abilities, participants gain self-confidence and independence and develop new friendships with other high-achieving students from across the state.

Nominees must:

  • Be in 4th-8th grade
  • Maintain and 85 or higher average
  • Demonstrate leadership ability
  • Be involved in school/community activities

Nominations are a great way for teachers to recognize your outstanding 4th-8th graders, especially in light of remote learning and modified and/or cancelled academic and extracurricular activities; each nominee receives a personalized certificate stating they were nominated based on demonstrated academic and leadership ability!

The winter nomination deadline is Friday, February 26, 2021. Nominate your outstanding 4th – 8th graders here!
