STAR Student Day 2017
The Kiwanis Club of Atlanta is proud to sponsor the STAR students and teachers for the Region 3A City of Atlanta schools. This year's luncheon will showcase the city's brightest students and their STAR teacher at the February 14th luncheon.
The PAGE Student Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program, now in its 59th year, is sponsored, administered and promoted by the Professional Association of Georgia Educators (PAGE). Since its creation by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the STAR program has honored nearly 26,000 students and the teachers they have selected as having had the most influence on their academic achievement. To obtain the 2017 STAR nomination, graduating high school seniors must have the highest score on a single test date on the SAT and be in the top 10 percent or top 10 students of their class based on grade point average.
STAR begins each year in participating high schools throughout Georgia when the STAR Student is named and chooses a STAR Teacher to share in this recognition. The students and their teachers are honored by their schools and receive special recognition in their communities from one of the more than 165 statewide civic organizations and businesses that serve as local sponsors of the STAR program. Students then compete for school system titles, and those winners compete for region honors. Region Winners compete for the honor of being named State PAGE STAR Student. STAR Teachers continue on with their STAR Students at every level of the program.
