The Education Awards honor exemplary students throughout West Orange County. Awards are presented in the following categories:
The Danniel J. Petro Scholarship is provided through the West Orange Foundation, Inc. and administrated by the West Orange Chamber of Commerce. The scholarship fund was established to make it possible for eligible students from local high schools to further their education at Valencia College (any campus), Orange Technical College, or the University of Central Florida. The West Orange Foundation is able to fund the scholarships through the generous contributions of the Petro Family Foundation.
W.O.P.T.E. is a program of the West Orange Foundation sponsored by Bright Future Electric and Walmart and facilitated by the West Orange Chamber of Commerce. The primary vision of the W.O.P.T.E. program is to raise the awareness of our youth regarding the West Orange County business community and all that it has to offer. With increased awareness of the area, it is hoped that the local 11th grade students will be better informed regarding career opportunities. W.O.P.T.E. partnered with Junior Achievement of Central Florida to present the JA Be Entrepreneurial and JA Job Shadow programs in which students gained a better understanding of entrepreneurship. Thank you to June Engineering for providing transportation for the students field trips.

Students of Achievement and Renown is an award of merit presented by the West Orange Chamber of Commerce. Students in the 5th, 8th and 11th grades are recognized for their initiative, good citizenship, commitment, and personal growth in the classroom. The 2022 SOAR award winners will receive medallion compliments of Trophies Unlimited
