Sterling Scholars

Congratulations to our 2021 Sterling Scholar winners and runners-up!

The pursuit of excellence — in scholarship, leadership, and citizenship — is what defines a Sterling Scholar in the state of Utah. Each high school senior who is recognized and awarded has demonstrated their knowledge, success, and vision by presenting a portfolio of their work in a specific category, has been interviewed by judges, and advanced at the high school, semifinal, and finals levels. From finalists in 14 categories, one overall Sterling Scholar winner is chosen and announced at an awards ceremony.
