The United States Achievement Academy has honored students through recognition and scholarship opportunities for 35 years. We are here to assist you in areas of encouragement and goal setting for your students eager to learn. Our student recognition programs are open to all educators in grades 5-12. Below is an overview of the nomination procedure, educational cash grants, and upcoming contests for students and teachers.
Nominate your students based on any two of the standards listed below. We use the word “nominate” to indicate that the students you select are immediately accepted for participation in the USAA programs. You may nominate your students bydownloading the hard copy nomination form or you can nominate online by clicking this link.
We look forward to receiving your nominations. Teachers can convince students that they can succeed, and students will believe it when they see the rewards for their hard work.
Your nominations provide your students the opportunity to apply for educational cash grants through our scholarship program. Our program encourages students to work hard to achieve this goal of national recognition and education cash grant opportunities. The winners of USAA grants are free to use the money for any educational expense (save for college tuition, books, school materials, school clothes, etc.) This year 400 educational cash grants of up to $1500 will be awarded plus the $10,000 Dr. George Stevens Founder’s Award.
This year, contests are planned for the nominating teachers and their nominated students. Please visit our website often or like us on Facebook for updates regarding contest subjects, instructions, and deadlines. Many of you may be able to incorporate the contest subjects with your classroom’s area of study. Three students and three teachers will be selected in each contest for monetary prizes as well as publication in our nationally distributed yearbook.
The United States Achievement Academy is committed to the privacy of all educators and nominated students. Educators and students' personal information such as addresses and phone numbers will not be listed anywhere for public use. In addition, educator and student's names, addresses, etc. are never sold to public or private entities for any reason.
