The Presidential Scholars Program recognizes and honors high school seniors who have demonstrated high achievement academically or in the arts; some having to overcome special challenges or hurdles to do so. Starting in 2016, outstanding students who demonstrated excellence in career and technical education were included for Presidential Scholar recognition.
