As a community based civic club, Ruritan takes pleasure in recognizing young citizens of the community. Each year the Club awards a gift certificate to a student at Lucketts Elementary, Smarts Mill Middle, and Tuscarora High for their outstanding citizenship.The awardees were selected by teachers and other representatives at the student’s school. The criteria for selection include being a good student, interacting well with both faculty and schoolmates, volunteering their time, and providing a good example to others.

- Carder Saul of Tuscarora High School awarded $500
- Mason Goodwyn from Smarts Middle School awarded $300
- Olivia Cohn from Lucketts Elementary School awarded $100
