The 8th Annual Alumni Action Award

The Prospect Sierra Alumni Action Award celebrates alumni who through work, research, or volunteerism are using their Prospect Sierra education to make a positive impact in the world in the realms of education, environment, health, and community development. The award also serves to inspire current students to become changemakers, instilling confidence that they, too, can make a difference.

This year, we once again celebrate changemakers in two age brackets:

  • one for high-school-aged alumni
  • another for alumni in college through age 30

Two prizes will be awarded, one for $500 and the other for $250. Prizes will be awarded according to rank voting, with the nominee who receives the most votes receiving the top prize, regardless of which age bracket they fall into.

We look forward to being inspired by your action!
