Welcome to the Harvard Club of Washington DC

Sponsor a Prize Book

Harvard Book Awards - The Harvard Book Award program is an important way for local alumni to recognize students of high character in our community. In the greater DC area, Harvard Book Awards are presented annually in more than 100 high schools to an outstanding student in the junior class who combines excellence in scholarship and high character with achievement in other fields. The selected student typically receives the award at the school’s graduation exercise or other school awards program. The Harvard Book has been chosen by HCW as the designated book. It contains a collection of passages and quotations about Harvard from such illustrious writers as John Updike, David Halberstam, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Theodore White, and Charles Dickens.

HCW handles all the details and will contact the school to arrange for the awarding of the prize. Often the alumnus/alumna who donated the book is invited to present the award in a ceremony at the school. In addition, HCW invites all the book award winners to an annual breakfast celebration in their honor, to recognize the students, and for each student, a teacher or principal from their school.

To sponsor a tax-deductible book(s) for $35 each, providing support for the HCW Harvard Book Award program and the Breakfast to honor book award recipients, click here: http://www.harvard-dc.org/donate.html
