Every single person in here, we have the chance to be a role model for someone, we have the chance to impact someone’s life, we have the chance to set the tone for someone. You can be really good at what you do and also have really high character.
— Tim Tebow, 2016 Scholar Athlete Awards Celebrity Speaker

The Scholar Athlete Awards have been an annual Columbus Dispatch initiative for more than 20 years and in that time more than $1 million in scholarships have been awarded to elite graduating seniors.  This June 6th will mark our third-annual LIVE recognition event for these Scholar Athletes and the community. That night, we'll recognize the top female and male graduating seniors from 117 area high schools for their achievements in academics, athletics, leadership and service. Twenty-two students will take home $94,000 in college scholarships.
