Stephen Daniels, a student at Council Rock North High School, is a winner in the Annual Washington Crossing Foundation National Scholarship Competition.
The awards are granted to high school seniors for the best all-around presentations, including an explanation of why they are planning careers in government service.
The non-profit Foundation noted that these winners represent the most talented and accomplished of our country’s young leaders.
Headquartered in Bristol, the Foundation has awarded $80,000 this year to 36 students across 21 states.
The Washington Crossing Foundation has awarded more than $1.7 million in scholarships since its inception.
Scholarships were inaugurated in 1969 and honor the more than 60 years of dedicated service to the nation by the late author-historian Ann Hawkes Hutton.
The Foundation believes that if our country is to continue to progress, we must have thoroughly trained, dedicated young men and women to carry on our government’s work in future years.
