Nomination Statement

“Priya Gupta, daughter of Omprakash and Madhulata Gupta of Dover, combines intellectual curiosity with a desire to make a difference in her world. Her academic success is reflected in her selection to the Governor’s School for Excellence, her recognition as a National AP Scholar, as well as numerous top placings in state and regional technology competitions. Her leadership is extensive both in school and in community activities and includes three terms as a state officer in the Technology Student Association (TSA) and her recent selection as a National TSA officer.

“My driving motivation to do well is our planet. Earth is a unique gift and our home, but it has been taken for granted. Now, life on Earth is being threatened. I want to help us save the planet we all love and work to achieve something bigger than myself. That is why I have worked to make the most out of my high school experience and will continue to do so until our planet is no longer in danger.”
