President's Education Awards Program
THE PRESIDENT'S EDUCATION AWARDS PROGRAM
RECOGNIZING STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND HARD WORK SINCE 1983
Founded in 1983, the President's Education Awards Program (PEAP) honors graduating elementary, middle and high school students for their achievement and hard work. The program has provided individual recognition from the President and the U.S. Secretary of Education to those students whose outstanding efforts have enabled them to meet challenging standards of excellence. Each year, thousands of elementary, middle, and high schools participate by recognizing deserving students.
