Since 2011, NBC10 and Widener University have partnered for the annual High School Leadership Awards, a program that recognizes high school juniors in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware who exhibit strong leadership skills, academic excellence, and exceptional character. This character can be shown through participation in extracurricular activities, volunteering, and/or demonstrating a positive influence on their peers.

Together, NBC10 and Widener University have honored nearly 600 high school students and provided these award recipients with the opportunity to attend a celebratory breakfast at the National Constitution Center, participate in a leadership experience at Widener University, and receive a $20,000 scholarship over four years if they enroll at Widener University as undergraduates.

Award winners who enroll at Widener University are named Apogee Scholars through the Oskin Leadership Institute, where they will hone their leadership skills to enact positive change on campus and beyond.

Each year, high school principals and administrators are encouraged to nominate one junior from their school to be considered for the High School Leadership Award. More information can be found on Widener University’s High School Leadership Awards website.
