The honorees for Tennessee Scholar of the Month must meet the rigorous requirements of the program and the following: 20 more hours of community service than what is required (40 total); above or equal to 3.25 cumulative grade point average; involvement with two school activities; and exhibition of strong leadership qualities (such as president of a club, captain of a team, etc.).
