The Harvard Book Prize


Annually, with the help of membership dues, the Club awards Harvard Book Prizes to promising rising seniors in area high schools. Chosen by the faculty and staff of their respective schools, these outstanding students in the next-to-graduating high school class have displayed excellence in scholarship and high character, combined with achievement in other fields. As part of their award, students receive a copy of The Harvard Book, purchased by our Club.


In 2018, the Club awarded a Book Prize to one student from each of the following schools: 

  • Battleground Academy

  • Brentwood Academy

  • Ensworth

  • Harpeth Hall

  • Hume-Fogg

  • Martin Luther King Jr. Magnet

  • Montgomery Bell Academy

  • St. Cecilia Academy
