Letter to CSF Advisers: Seymour Award

It’s time to choose your top one or two seniors and start their nomination for the California Scholarship Federation’s Seymour Memorial Award, given out each year since 1935. The application packet must be submitted online no later than February 18, 2018. From all the nominations, we will choose the top 10 Sealbearers in each region, who then become the Seymour Finalists.  At your regional conference, we will interview the ten Finalists and select one to receive the Seymour Award for your region. Each of the ten Finalists will receive $2,000 and the single Charles F. Seymour Memorial Award recipient from each region will receive an additional $3,000.

We will be looking for those Sealbearers (Life Members) who best personify the CSF motto, “Scholars for Service.” Demonstrated excellence in both service (especially as a member of your chapter) and scholarship is key to a candidate’s selection.  If selected as a Finalist, the candidate must attend the spring conference in his or her region and fully participate in the interview process on that day in order to receive any financial award.  Finalists who are not able to attend the conference to participate in the interview process will forfeit their Finalist award.

All advisers whose chapters’ dues and lists are current through last year are eligible to nominate one or two students.  Candidates must be Sealbearers by the end of their first semester of the senior year. Their application packet must be completed according to the directions given and postmarked by the deadline in order to ensure their consideration for this award.

Additionally, each year the Seymour committee may need volunteers to participate in the application reading and evaluation process with them. We are hoping to grow our pool of volunteer advisers for this, so if you are interested, please call or email the Central Office.

We are looking for California’s finest, and with your help we will find them. If you need any assistance throughout the nomination process, please contact the Central Office. We look forward to working with you.

North Region Spring 2018 Conference

CSF/CJSF North Conference 2018 at Lindhurst High SchoolLindhurst High School Presents: “Adventure Around the World”
CSF/CJSF North Region Conference 2018
Saturday, March 24, 2018

Lindhurst High School is both honored and excited to host this year’s North Region CSF/CJSF conference, “Adventure around the World”! Our theme will integrate culturally diverse workshop options, international service opportunities and an international lunch that showcases the diversity of cultures of the students at Lindhurst High.

CSF conferences are the most economical way to expose your students to interesting topics, important college information, and networking opportunities. They are also a great opportunity for younger students to witness the service and academic accomplishments of the Huhn and Seymour nominees and recipients as a model for their own futures.

Our campus is conveniently located 40 minutes north of Sacramento and we are super easy to find.

We will be accepting registrations up until March 14th so that we can best plan for all that attend. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

I hope you all join us!
