This is the 27th year for 20 standout seniors in the Pikes Peak region to be recognized for their contributions to their schools and communities.

Applicants need to provide basic information and one letter of recommendation, and answer three questions about their vision, community service and defining moments.

Gazette Charities is a nonprofit arm of The Gazette, which operates Colorado Springs’ daily newspaper and other media platforms.

Completed applications must be received at The Gazette by 4 p.m. on Friday, April 6.

For more information, contact Chelsey Walker at or 476-4810.

Winners will be announced April 15. Each recipient will receive a $250 scholarship and an individual story published in The Gazette between April 16 and May 5. An awards ceremony will be held in mid-May.
