Awards Given

 

Student of the Year Honorarium: Each year we contact 6 local high schools (Truman, Conwell Egan, Bucks County Tech, Bristol, Pennsbury and Neshaminy) to request that the guidance counselor choose a recipient of our scholarship based on the following criteria: demonstrates financial need, participates in community service, and resides in our service areas of Levittown or Bristol.  We present these awards to seniors, usually in May of the graduation year. 

 

Dick Dougherty Honorarium: Since 1999 tens of thousands of runners have participated in the Sesame Classic, a race held at a local amusement park, Sesame Place, to have fun and raise money for local honorariums.. Members of our club have worked this event since its founding to raise money for this scholarship. The scholarship is presented in memory of former Bucks County sports editor Dick Dougherty and aims to recognize local high school students who strive academically and contribute to community life - a balance of ideals that Dougherty valued.  Each May thirty-four scholar athletes from eighteen Bucks County schools, are honored at the Bucks County Courier Times and Levittown Bristol Kiwanis Scholarship Dinner.
