Clearwater High School senior Sam Johnson has been chosen as a recipient of the 2016 Outstanding Achievement in Citizenship Award. Sam will be honored at a luncheon at the Capitol Plaza in Jefferson City next week.
Each public high school in Missouri is eligible to nominate one senior for the award. Students are selected for the award on the basis of their academic achievement in civics and government courses, performance in civics and government-related extracurricular activities and exemplary community service. Students also must submit an essay about the importance of citizenship.
The Missouri General Assembly established the citizenship award in 1990. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education conducts the awards competition with assistance and financial support from the Missouri Bar.
