Leadership Award


Dwight D. Eisenhower Leadership Award

Sponsored by the USMA Field Force and The West Point Society of New Jersey, the purpose of the award is to recognize exceptional high school juniors in New Jersey who demonstrate outstanding performance in the areas of academics, athletics, community service, good citizenship and leadership.

All high school juniors attending high schools that agree to participate in this program will be eligible to receive the Dwight D. Eisenhower Award with one recipient being selected from each participating school.


The Eisenhower Award Ceremony

Each recipient will receive a Certificate of Recognition for their outstanding achievements. In addition, the recipient’s name will be placed on a perpetual plaque on display at the recipient’s school.

The award will be presented at the Award Recognition Day Ceremony which is held each year in April on the campus of the United States Military Academy at West Point. A light luncheon is served after the presentation of the award followed by a tour of the West Point campus. Should the recipient be unable to attend the Recognition Day Ceremony, arrangements with the school’s sponsor can be made to present the award during the school’s award’s ceremony.
