James Monroe Prize in Civic Leadership

The James Monroe Prize in Civic Leadership is awarded at the College of William and Mary to an undergraduate student who exemplifies the acceptance of just responsibility through leadership for the greater good. The recipient of the award will have demonstrated sustained leadership combined with initiative; shows character and an unfailing commitment to the ethic of service; is able to know when to confront challenges; inspires others to engage; and leverages the community's assets to help address society's needs.

The prize was established in 2005 by the Owens Foundation. Honorees receive a financial scholarship, a framed citation, and their names are added to a permanent plaque describing the award in the Sadler Center.
