John Giba Student Leadership Award Program

JOHN GIBA STUDENT LEADERSHIP AWARD PROGRAM NOW OPEN FOR APPLICATIONS AND OFFERING AN INCREASE IN AWARDS!

The John Giba Student Leadership Award Program awarded by the Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce Foundation exists to encourage, recognize and reward selected area High School seniors who have demonstrated strong leadership potential through a combination of scholastic excellence, community service, and extra-curricular activities. The Chamber Foundation recognizes these students at the Annual Education Awards membership breakfast with a plaque and a monetary gift.  Money for the gifts is derived from the income of an Endowment Program established under the Chamber Foundation, a private non-profit foundation.

John C. Giba, a Jupiter-Tequesta businessman, believed in the importance of student leadership through education. The Chamber Foundation was formed to oversee the endowment established by Mr. Giba’s donation, and is committed to investing in the educational future of our youth.

The Palm Beach North Chamber Foundation is pleased to announce an increase in cash awards.  New this year, one High School senior will receive a $3,000 award.  Four additional High School seniors will each receive a $1,500 award.  This year’s selection process will include an interview with the Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce Foundation Selection Sub-Committee.
