The 2015 ACE Awards!
The ACE Awards (Advocates for Character and Education) is an annual award given to 66 male and female students from each of the 33 Greenville County middle and high schools. This award is designed to honor true “unsung heroes” who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments.
If you would like to nominate a Greenville County 8th or 12th grader, please complete and submit this nomination form. All nominations must be submitted by January 30, 2015. An ACE Awards Advisory Committee at each school will choose finalists from among those nominated to complete an application for the ACE Award. One male and one female will be chosen from each middle and high school in Greenville County. Click here to nominate a Tanglewood Student.
