All Military Child of the Year Award recipients will be flown with a parent or guardian to Washington, D.C., to be recognized at the April gala, during which senior leaders of each branch of service will present the awards. They also will receive $10,000 each, a laptop computer, and other donated gifts.

Now in its 16th year, the Military Child of the Year Award reflects the positive impact that these impressive young people have made on their military families, their schools, and their communities. Military Child of the Year® Award is the nation’s premier recognition of the outstanding achievements of our military children. Scholarship Search
