Calcasieu Parish School Board
Student of the Year Program
The Student of the Year Awards Program is designed to recognize outstanding elementary, middle/junior, and high school students. This program, patterned after The Teacher of the Year Awards Program, is an excellent opportunity to recognize from each school those students who have demonstrated excellent academic achievement, leadership ability, and citizenship. The Louisiana State Superintendent through the State Department of Education and the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education sponsors The Students of the Year Awards Program. The Elementary Department facilitates the selection process at the district level. Responsibilities include informing school level facilitators of guidelines and procedures, selecting judges, scheduling writing competition/interviews, and conducting the week long interview process. Following the selection of district winners, the elementary department assists the students in preparing for the regional competition.
