APT Seeks Young Heroes for 2024

Do you know a student in grades 9-12 who has excelled in academics, given of themselves through public service, overcome adversity, or inspired others through deeds and strength of character? If you know someone who you think should be recognized for these accomplishments,  as well as win a laptop computer, prizes, and a scholarship award of $10,000, nominate them before January 26, 2024.
