New Hampshire Scholars Day 2020 is Cancelled

As our state and our nation continue to grapple with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the health and well-being of our students, educators and staff is our top priority.  Given the uncertainty of when high schools will return to the classroom, if and when school districts allow field trips, and the delayed start of the Major League Baseball season impacting the Fisher Cats schedule, we have carefully considered all options.

What we are experiencing is unprecedented and we understand that this is an emotional and stressful time for students, especially our high school seniors graduating in the Class of 2020.

It is with disappointment and sadness that New Hampshire Scholars Day is cancelled.  While we will miss celebrating the success of this year’s seniors at the Stadium in May, we are confident that students will persevere through this adversity and be stronger for it.

Rest assure that recognition materials will be packaged for schools as planned.  Hopefully students return to school soon with award nights and graduations still taking place in May and June.  Regardless, recognition materials will be available to distribute to your students.

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.  And thank you to all of the teachers, counselors and administrators working hard to implement remote learning this month.

Please contact NH Scholars with any questions:, (603) 225-4199 x300

The NH Fisher Cats have asked to recognize our students at a game later this summer.  This would be an informal and voluntary opportunity for students/families to attend a game on their own.  More details to follow.

Thank you to our event sponsor:  New Hampshire Motor Speedway
