2019 Leo Benavides Award — More Information & Sponsorships

The Leo C. Benavides Award is given annually to one high school student from each high school in Tarrant County in recognition of outstanding volunteerism and servant leadership both at school and out in the community. The students awarded this honor are the students boldly standing on the front lines to fight back on bullying, poverty, discrimination, drugs, and so many other negative forces with compassion, generosity, respect, ingenuity and simple kindness. They are unsung heroes – until this awards changes that by celebrating, thanking and encouraging their service.
