The Virginian-Pilot Scholarship and Recognition Program

The Virginian-Pilot recognizes top academic achievers in our community by publishing a special Scholastic Achievement section as a part of our Virginian-Pilot Scholastic Achievement Scholarship and Recognition Program. Area high schools nominate their scholastic team of sophomores, juniors and seniors for recognition based on academic excellence, leadership and service. The Scholastic Achievement section publishes annually in The Virginian-Pilot in May.

In addition to giving recognition, The Virginian-Pilot awards scholarships and administers additional scholarships provided by sponsors. Local schools select a senior who may apply for scholarships. A panel of judges selects scholarship finalists based on a candidate’s ambitions, achievements, extracurricular activities and financial need.

The following school districts may participate: VA: Accomack, Chesapeake, Franklin, Isle of Wight, Norfolk, Northampton, Portsmouth, Southampton, Suffolk and Virginia Beach

NC: Camden, Currituck, Dare, Edenton/Chowan, Elizabeth City/Pasquotank, Gates and Perquimans
