ACE Awards
Each year, the ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) honor 66 male and female students who are considered true “unsung heroes” in their schools. This award was created to recognize students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but have accomplished great things in their community, church or school. These students will be recognized at the ACE Awards ceremony for outstanding character and academic effort.
If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th or 12th grader, please complete and submit the nomination form online at All nominations must be submitted by January 31st.
An ACE Awards Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award.
