Last week, an eighth grade student from Litchfield was named a 2018 Scholar Attitude Award Winner by the Illinois Elementary School Association.
Elaan Bader was one of 15 students to receive the honor in the state. To be considered for the award, an eighth grade student from an IESA member school must have a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale, must have participated in at least one IESA activity during each year of their two-year junior high career, and demonstrated outstanding citizenship during their junior high tenure. Each student was also required to submit an essay titled “The Value of Sportsmanship.”
Bader, along with two guests and the Litchfield Middle School Principal will be guests of the IESA and will be honored with a luncheon on Tuesday, May 1, at the Doubletree Hotel and Conference Center in Bloomington. The ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. She and the other award winners will receive a plaque, an award medallion, a gift card, and a DVD of the day's events.
According to the IESA, Bader is the first Litchfield student to receive the award. A complete list of prior winners may be found at iesa.org/sportsmanship.
