Grant Description
Opportunity for USA adults and middle and high school students to participate in a competition to recognize contributions to the community. The winning individual and student will receive funds to support their continued efforts to improve the lives of others. Eligible nominees are either adults or current middle school or high school students.

Pilot Pen is once again looking for true Overachievers—adults and students who go above and beyond to make their communities and the world better for all. Whether it’s an individual going above and beyond their 9-to-5 job to improve their community, a student making a difference outside their classroom or another noble effort, Pilot wants to hear about it and give these Overachievers the recognition they deserve.

Grants will be awarded to outstanding overachievers who go above and beyond to improve the lives of others.

The 2023 G2 Overachievers Grant will be awarded by Pilot Pen to one exceptional individual who goes beyond their everyday jobs and responsibilities to give back to their community and improve the lives of others.

The 2023 G2 Overachievers Student Grant will be awarded by Pilot Pen in recognition of an outstanding student who rises beyond the level of their everyday studies and utilizes their learnings to positively impact the world around them.

The Nominee must also be employed full-time (i.e. at least forty (40) hours per week) and must maintain full-time employment from the date of nomination to the date the Grand Prize is announced. As the purpose of this contest is to recognize individuals who have overcome challenges to achieve extraordinary success beyond their typical workday obligations with the goal of improving the lives of others, the Nominee’s extraordinary success must be achieved through endeavors that are entirely separate and distinct from the Nominee’s full-time employment duties. The nominee’s endeavors must be separate from any pre-existing charity unless the nominee helped found the charity. The same Nominee may be nominated by more than one Participant.

The Nominee may turn 20 years of age after nomination and still be eligible for the contest. The Nominee must be on the honor roll at his/her school according to their school’s performance grading system. Preference will be given to Nominees who have not received grants or scholarships in excess of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000). Preference will be given to Nominees whose overachieving endeavors and initiatives are not part of an existing organization (example: Key Club). Nominee must agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of these Official Rules. The same Nominee may be nominated by more than one Participant. For minors, Nominees must obtain the written consent of the parent or legal guardian of the Nominee to participate in the Contest, release personally identifiable information and submit student data of the Nominee.
