Sterling Scholar

By definition, “sterling” is something pure and valuable, synonymous with adjectives like, “exceptional,” “outstanding,” and “commendable.” Certainly, all these words apply to the many students throughout Utah who participate in the Sterling Scholar Award program.

This statewide academic competition recognizes the achievements of Utah’s high school seniors in 15 different categories: Agriculture Science, Business and Marketing, Computer Technology, Dance, English, Family and Consumer Sciences, World Languages, General Scholarship, Mathematics, Music, Science, Social Science, Speech and Drama, Skilled and Technical Science Education, and Visual Arts.
