The Golden Citrus Scholar Awards recognize the best and brightest graduating seniors in Citrus County. Each High School can nominate one student in each of eight categories – English/Literature/Journalism, Fine/Performing Arts, Leadership/Service, Mathematics/Engineering, Science, Social Studies/Civics, Career/Technical, World Languages/Foreign Studies.
A panel of judges including local Rotary Members, Chamber of Commerce representatives, and Citrus County Education Foundation Members reviewed the nominees' achievements and selected a single winner from each category, as well as an overall Golden Citrus Scholar Hall of Fame winner.
This recognition program seeks to highlight the tremendous achievements of Citrus County’s finest graduating seniors. All nominees receive scholarships funded by the generous support of donors including CCEF.
There is a bus tour to hand out awards to each of our winners.
