Students are nominated by their high schools to receive this award. Each Student of the Month receives a monetary donation, along with a certificate from the Van Wert Elks Lodge 1197, with the possibility to be named Student of the Year.

Students are judged on the basis of multiple achievements: Volunteerism, character, leadership, service, citizenship, and scholastic achievement.

The program is designed to recognize outstanding young men and women for their achievements in school and community. The Elks recognize and praise students for their accomplishments, their activities, and their contributions to society through this program.
