• BHS Student of the Month Program

    The Student of the Month Program is meant to promote success in and out of the classroom. For a student to be a well-respected citizen, they must be able to balance many different areas of life. They must exemplify outstanding characteristics both as a student and as a citizen of the community. The student must be able to handle many different aspects of student life while maintaining excellence in the classroom. This award is designed to nominate and select students who promote and take pride in Bluefield High School and in themselves.

    Nomination Criteria

    To be nominated as Student of the Month the candidate must exemplify character in and out of the classroom. A student cannot receive the awards more than once within a year. (with the exception of seniors-all student of the months will be voted on as Student of the Year)

    Who nominates?

    Students will be nominated by Bluefield High faculty and staff each month. A reminder will be sent of the nominations each month. Each staff member can only nominate one (1) student per month per grade. A list will be compiled and the administrative and counselor team will decide on the final student of the months.


    The selected students’ pictures and name will be showcased during the month of recognition both at the school and on the school’s website. The students will get a certificate and a gift card.
