Honoring the students of Aurora

Since 2009, the city of Aurora has honored one student from each grade in every school building in Aurora in a citywide ceremony with the city's mayor and city council, school superintendents and other designees. Students receive a certificate and gifts donated by the community.
Students in grades 1 through 12 are selected by the principal and teachers at their school for being overall first-rate students and excellent members of the school community. The program is designed to identify those students in Aurora who strongly contribute to the life and community of their respective schools. They might be a stellar student-athlete, a terrific citizen, a high academic achiever, or a dedicated volunteer. But most importantly, they go above and beyond in whatever they do best.

It's an opportunity for the city of Aurora, schools, and families to come together to celebrate the achievements of Aurora's future leaders. More than 450 students each year in Aurora Public Schools, Cherry Creek Schools, and charter, parochial and private schools are honored annually through the Aurora Scholars program. For questions about the program, call Alia Gonzales at 303.739.6580. If you have a name correction, call and leave a message with the student's name, school, and correct spelling. You may also send any corrections to Alia at

About the ceremonies
