22nd Award event Keynote Speaker (2016)
The Breakfast Group will sponsor its Twenty-fourth Annual “All Achievers Awards Ceremony” on Sunday, May 20th, 2018 at The Northwest African American Museum in Seattle from 2:30 to 4:30 pm. Please follow us on social media or check back at this page for updated information on this year's event. In the past we have honored approximately 85 predominantly African-American high school students who made meaningful improvements and achievements in both their academic and community lives.
We continue to focus on students who are at a critical junction, at which they have demonstrated sound judgment and commendable progress. Each year this program awards scholarships to “at risk” youth who have overcome obstacles to excel in school and the community. Students honored are nominated by their school counselors for demonstrating positive change, and each have made significant progress during the 2017-2018 school year in the areas of: academic excellence, extracurricular activities, community/civic involvement, and leadership experience.
Scholarships are awarded to graduating Project M.I.S.T.E.R.™ students, as well as other students attending various high school campuses in the greater Seattle area. These students have all made significant progress toward achieving their full potential. It is these tenacious young men whom The Breakfast Group recognizes, empowers, and encourages to continue on the path they have chosen.
Various awards, scholarships, gifts, and other forms of recognition are presented to all nominees selected. Each of the 16 high schools in the Seattle School District has a plaque prominently displayed bearing the names of the students selected from their respective school. The most important aspect of this program is to encourage college enrollment by offering tuition scholarships and book stipends. During the current school year we are supporting twelve students with $1000 scholarships, nine students with $500 scholarships, and numerous additional students with book stipends of up to $250 per student.
During the 24 years of hosting this event, The Breakfast Group has awarded more than $501,000 in scholarships and stipends, and has impacted the lives of more than 1,815 students.
