The objective for the K-State Civic Leadership Scholarship competition is to identify and reward exceptional high school seniors who have demonstrated a commitment to serving others in their community, school or place of worship.

This competition rewards students who are making a difference and demonstrating creativity by developing projects and programs with a lasting impact on those they serve.
