Each year, the Mayor of Denver honors Denver Public School students as Mile High Scholars.
Students are selected by the principal and faculty of their school for modeling good leadership, respect for self, others, and the school environment, and for supporting their peers. Schools can select one student from every grade, 1st grade and above, for this honor.
Students receive a certificate, a picture with the Mayor, tickets to sporting events and cultural venues, and a bumper sticker to display their achievement.
