IHS Senior Awards 2020

Attention Seniors: We want you to know about the need to complete an application to be eligible to receive money from senior awards.  

Every year there is a ceremony for seniors who have received an award(s). Awards come from many sources, such as nominations by IHS teachers or an outside organization, in the memory of loved ones, or in honor of an IHS graduating class. These specific awards have a trust fund account and recognize students with a monetary award.

In order to be nominated for many of the awards, you need to fill out an award application. Please don't hesitate to get this done! Applications can be downloaded from this page or picked up from J15 or G116. Mrs. Powers and Mr. Noyes are the coordinators of the awards program, and we wish you all the best. Please don't hesitate to ask either of us a question.
