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 2022 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 Contest is intended 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 (“Overachievers”).

The 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 Contest is intended to recognize students who are changing the world, their school or community through their selfless determination of giving back in a unique and impactful way (“Overachievers”). The actions of these Overachievers extend beyond the classroom and their extracurricular activities and make the world a better place.
