The deadline to nominate is February 27. Any freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior high school students are eligible for recognition, but only seniors can receive the scholarship.

For this scholarship opportunity we acknowledge what these students do on the athletic field, but more importantly what they are doing in the classroom and community, all while overcoming some type of adversity,” says Anthony Muñoz. “I am grateful to the community for helping us reach these incredible students and allowing us the opportunity to recognize their overall achievements.”

All Straight “A” Scholarship nominees will receive a letter of achievement along with name recognition on the Anthony Muñoz Foundation website.
