The Max Warburg Courage Curriculum is proud to announce the 2011 Max Warburg Fellows.
From more than 2,500 submitted essays, our volunteer judges chose 45 students from 32 schools in Boston and the surrounding communities as this year's Fellows. These 45 students have their courage essay published in our 20th anniversary volume of The Max's signature publication, The Courage of Boston's Children.
The Max Warburg Fellows will also be honored at our annual awards luncheon today, held at Northeastern University, where the Courage Curriculum is in residence and a proud partner of the Stony Brook Initiative. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, Courage Curriculum Founder and President Stephanie Warburg, leadership from Northeastern University and other special guest speakers will be on hand to congratulate the Fellows.
During the past 20 years, more than 700 children have been honored as Max Warburg Fellows and thousands more have discovered their own capacity for courage by participating in our programs. The Max Warburg Courage Curriculum is proud to celebrate the courage of Boston's children - past, present and future.
