All winners receive recognition at an awards ceremony at the Museum. Their stories are featured for one year in a Museum exhibit. They receive a certificate of achievement, medallion, and other gifts. They may also have the opportunity to represent this program at future Museum events.
Additionally, one student is named the President’s Honor Winner, which includes a monetary prize. This year we also presented a student with our Spark Award for Innovation, Creativity, Perseverance and Respect, created in memory of Alan Holmes Johnson-McNutt, Manager of Outreach for the National Liberty Museum.
At the end of each school year, the NLM's Young Heroes Outreach Program, which brings the Museum’s civic leadership curriculum directly into area schools, holds a grand celebration to showcase the Social Action Projects created by all of the participating schools. This year the celebration was a VIRTUAL event and their projects are available for viewing on this website!
