APM Law – Scholar Athlete Program

by John McKiggan

It’s the first day of the school year here in Nova Scotia and we are very excited to announce our new Scholarship program for outstanding high school student – athletes.

All of the lawyers at APM Law know the dedication, discipline and sacrifice it takes to be both a good student and a competitive athlete. We know how these traits can help lead young persons to success later in life. So we started our Scholar Athlete Program to acknowledge grade 12 student-athletes who exceed expectations in class and in athletic competition.

How Does it Work?

Each week from September to the end of May, a grade 12 student in Nova Scotia will be selected as the APM Law: Scholar-Athlete of the Week and awarded a $100 scholarship to recognize their dedication.

In June, APM Law will host a banquet for all our scholar-athletes and their parents-guardians. One female and one male student–athlete will be selected as the APM Law: Scholar-Athletes of the Year.

Each winner will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship and receive a commemorative trophy to honour their achievement.

Who Can Nominate?

Anyone can nominate a Scholar-Athlete; fellow students or athletes, parents, coaches, teammates, teachers, or school administration.

Selection Criteria

In order to be honoured as the APM Law: Scholar-Athlete of the Week, the student must attend grade 12 at a high school in Nova Scotia, have a minimum of an 80% (B) average, and provide details of their outstanding accomplishments in his or her sport(s).

Persistence Pays Off

Just like in sports and the rest of life, persistence can pay off. If a nominee isn’t selected the week they are nominated, we keep their nomination form for re-consideration during the rest of the school year. It doesn’t hurt to re-nominate a candidate and let us know about further accomplishments.
