what is a silver knight
What is a silver knight?
  • The Miami Herald Silver Knight Awards is one of the nation’s most highly regarded student awards programs.
  • The purpose of this Awards program is to recognize outstanding students who have not only maintained good grades but have also unselfishly applied their special knowledge and talents to contribute significant service to their schools and communities.
  • The Silver Knight Awards program was instituted at The Miami Herald in 1959 by John S. Knight, past publisher of The Miami Herald, founder and editor emeritus of Knight-Ridder Newspapers and 1968 Pulitzer Prize winner.

What is a silver knight?
  • Awards: $2,000 cash, Silver Knight statuette (think Oscar!) medallion from American Airlines (usually one RT plane ticket as well)
  • Honorable mentions: $500 cash, engraved plaque
  • PLUS, the prestige of the award and a tightly knit networking community throughout the country ( relations/finance)
  • 12th grade students only
  • 3.2 un-weighted GPA
  • This is a community-service based award:
    • individual contribution/personal initiative - not hours
  • Category specific: one of (15) with appropriate academic concentration, though the major service project does not need to match
  • A Silver Knight is one whose record of service to the school and community best exemplifies an unselfish and continuous use of one’s talents in helping others.
  • Judges evaluate community service:
    • 9th through 12th grades.
    • service, achievements, character, leadership and interview skills.
  • Two major factors to be weighed:
    • consistency and lasting impact of service.
    • Other factors include independent thinking, creative problem solving, leadership in getting others involved, and perseverance in overcoming obstacles.
    • Most nominees will have a wide range of service activities.
