Hi-Q-Logo_200Nominations are being sought for the 2017 Delco Hi-Q Hall of Honor.

This prestigious designation is bestowed upon past Hi-Q participants who have distinguished themselves through career or community service. The award also recognizes educators and supporters of Delco Hi-Q who have made extraordinary contributions to the program.

With support from the Delaware County Intermediate Unit, the Franklin Mint Federal Credit Union is the primary corporate sponsor of Delco Hi-Q, the nation’s oldest continuous academic quiz competition.

FMFCU and DCIU initiated the Delco Hi-Q Hall of Honor in 2005 to provide role models for current Hi-Q team members. To be eligible, former Delco Hi-Q team members must have participated in at least one season of academic competitions, and must have graduated from high school a minimum of seven years ago.

To nominate a candidate, simply click here and enter your submission prior to the March 3 deadline.

Induction will take place at the annual Partners in Education Celebration on April 27 at the Drexelbrook Corporate Events Center. Also being recognized at the region’s premier academic achievement event are this year’s Delco Hi-Q Champions, All-Delco Hi-Q Team, Excellence in Teaching Awardees, the 2017 Financial Literacy Advocate, John D. Unangst Scholarship recipients, and more.

The 2017 Delco Hi-Q Hall of Honor Inductee will be immortalized with previous inductees whose plaques conspicuously adorn the wall in the lobby of the DCIU, Morton conference center.
