American Legion School Award Medal: Riley Galat
 
American Legion Award Winner Riley Galat

Since 1926, the Legion has recognized students who exemplify six qualities that define character: courage, honor, leadership, patriotism, scholarship and service. Candidates for the award are voted upon by a school's faculty and members of the candidates graduating class through a secret ballot casting. The local Legion post involved with the school makes the final selection upon receiving recommendation from students and faculty. Each awardee receives a certificate and a medal with the six qualities listed on the face of the medal, as the back bears the Marine Corps motto, "Semper Fidelis" ("always faithful").

The graduating student is selected by school administrators based on their achievements, character, leadership and/or community involvement. AJC Cup recipients and their families are recognized at an event hosted by the AJC. The honorees receive a cup trophy printed with their name and school and are recognized in the print edition of the newspaper and online.
