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 "Kindness." Do you know of a local student who's shown outstanding kindness to friends, family members or the community at large? What has the student done to show kindness? Fill out the form below and tell us about all about it.
