Each year, The News-Journal celebrates the outstanding work of area high schools through its Medallion of Excellence Awards program. High school seniors in Volusia and Flagler counties -- in high schools with more than 25 students in the 2016 graduating class -- should consult with their principal or guidance counselor about applying for an award. Medallion of Excellence award-winners will be students who not only achieve high academic scholarship but who also stand out in extracurricular and community activities in areas including -- but not limited to -- the arts, sports, volunteerism and leadership. Up to 40 Medallion of Excellence winners will be determined by a panel of education professionals and will be honored at a banquet next April.
