For the past few years, Apple Valley Dental & Braces has been recognizing local students who go above and beyond in academics, leadership, citizenship, athletics, kindness and other positive traits. And they're doing it again this school year.

They're inviting parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends to nominate deserving local students for some recognition -- and a reward! Each month during the school year, Apple Valley Dental and Braces will review nominations and select one local high school student, one local middle schooler and one local elementary school student to receive a $100 Visa gift card.

This month's theme is "Most Improved." Do you know of a local student who's shown impressive improvement in their grades, citizenship, athleticism or general outlook? In what specific ways has the student improved? Fill out the form below and tell us about all about it.
