Select 58The Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58 invites all eighth graders attending Herrick and O’Neill middle schools to apply for a Select 58 Recognition Award.

Select 58 annually recognizes students who exhibit outstanding service and citizenry to their school and community. Fifty-eight students – 29 from Herrick and 29 from O’Neill – will receive this honor. All students are eligible to apply for the honor, as long as they are passing their classes.

To apply for this award, eighth graders may complete the Select 58 Award Application and submit it to the school office by Thursday, Feb. 27. The application asks eighth graders to share their experiences participating in service projects and school/community activities.

The Education Foundation will notify award recipients in late March.

The Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58 and its community partners will host a special awards dinner to honor Select 58 recipients on Monday, April 20 from 6-8 p.m. at Herrick Middle School.

A complete list of instructions is included with the Select 58 Award Application.
