Student Recognition Banquet

Annually, NJPA honors students who would not otherwise be honored at a local or regional level. Each school district is invited to nominate two students to be honored at the NJPA Student Recognition Banquet.

2014 Event: TBD

District staff nominate deserving students for the regional honor. Student nominees, their families as well as their nominators are invited to attend our Event & Banquet.

The program for this event features the picture of each winner and a story about why they won. Each recognized student is eligible for scholarships and/or door prize drawings, donated by local area businesses. Our Student Recognition Program is the “venue” for our annual meeting of the NJPA Representative Assembly.

Contribute to the Recognition Program

Thank you in advance for your consideration and for helping to make a difference, both, in our region and in the lives of our students.

In addition to pictures, celebration, stories and, probably, even a few tears, the evening will include great prizes and thousands of dollars in scholarships given to these deserving students. 100% of your contribution is returned to the student and can be made in the form of a door prize or monetary gift for a scholarship.

We have seven levels of donation available:

$25                              White
$50                              Red
$100                            Blue
$150                            Bronze
$200                            Silver
$250                            Gold
Over $250                   Platinum

Each level will include recognition (your company name and level of sponsorship) in the Banquet Program. In addition, you will receive recognition in the Brainerd Dispatch full-page advertisement for this event that will be on newsstands during the week of the event, and of course, on our website. All gifts are tax deductable.

Your contribution would be greatly appreciated and would add a great deal of merit to our event.
