• Citizen of the Month

  • Event Information

    Ten students from area schools are recognized every month during the school year at our Student Citizen of the Month ceremony. Students honored by the Zephyrhills Chamber’s Citizen of the Month program are chosen by the teachers and administration of their individual schools for exemplary effort, achievement and contribution to their school, family and community The Zephyrhills chamber has recognized students with this program each month of the school year for more than 20 years.

    At the monthly breakfast ceremony, Student Citizens are presented with certificates of achievement, medallions, and letters of commendation from local and state officials recognizing their achievements and the exceptional example they set for their peers. Students and their families are treated to breakfast and the students are awarded with various gifts and recognitions from businesses who sponsor or support the program.Our student citizens are always thrilled to leave with a bag full of “goodies” provided by chamber supporters. During the ceremony, the students are brought on stage individually for a brief interview and parents and teachers are invited to give words of encouragement for each student.
