Students Who Make a Difference
This is a special feature of the April 2019 issue of Upstate Parent magazine.

Upstate Parent wants to honor tomorrow’s leaders. Tell us about your best and brightest fifth-grade students. Please consider academics, activities, leadership, compassion for others and desire to make a difference. We are asking local school administrators to tell us about the top academic achievers in their fifth-grade classes.

Please recommend only one child per school, please: Administrators, please choose students who exemplify exceptional study habits, outstanding classroom performance, and varied hobbies and passions. The nominee need not be the top student in his or her class. We are seeking well-rounded students — those who reflect a commitment to achieving above and beyond the basics and making a difference in the lives of those around them.

Ten students will be featured in our print magazine in the April 2019 issue.

Please note: We may use your name in our article unless you specify otherwise below.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, Feb. 19. NOTE: Students must be in the fifth grade, attending class in public or private schools in Greenville, Spartanburg or Pickens counties. Questions? Please email
