One child per state can be named a Nicholas Green Distinguished Student and that winner receives $500 and a Certificate of Excellence.
Established to honor the memory of Dick Scobee, Commander of NASA's Space Shuttle Challenger, this annual award is for TWO $1,000 scholarships for gifted learners. Candidates must be interested in pursuing a career in STEM and in their senior year of high school.
