ACE Award – Step 2 – Guidance Counselor Form

The A.C.E. (Accepting the Challenge of Excellence) Award recognizes high school students who have had to overcome great
physical, emotional, or social obstacles and are now eligible for high school graduation.

This is a positive program with two key objectives: it helps encourage students to overcome their hardships and get back on
track toward a high school diploma; and it recognizes those students who are often overlooked for their accomplishments. This special recognition serves as a powerful example to all students that hard work and perseverance are rewarded.

The submission deadline for the National A.C.E. Award is June 1. The winner will be presented the A.C.E. Award and a $15,000 scholarship at Exchange’s National Convention. Travel accommodations will be provided to the winner and his/her parents/guardians.
