Yale Book Awards, 2014

Yale Book Awards, 2014
Once again, YWAA will preside over the presentation of over 40 Yale Book Awards to top high-school students in Westchester finishing up their junior years.  The awards will be announced and presented this spring. Students will receive a package of gifts, including a copy of the Yale Book of Quotations, edited by Fred Shapiro of the Yale Law School.         

Presenting the Yale Book Awards is a YWAA tradition to recognize Westchester students who exhibit "outstanding personal character and intellectual promise."  Some winners may decide in their senior years to apply to Yale and attend, if admitted. Students are selected by their high schools.  In 2013, 40 students received the award, 50 in 2012. More than 40 schools participate in the program each year, administered by YWAA board member Peter Santhanam  '85 Ph.d.

Awards are often presented at school assemblies or at other programs. More than half of the awards are endowed by Yale alumni. Alumni who may want to support the program can do so by clicking YBA.
