Twice a year the Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce honors ConVal high school students with ACE Awards, recognizing skills that will lead to success in the world of employment, including Attitude, Character and Effort. To quality for an ACE award, a ConVal student must be nominated by a faculty member, and then scored on each of the A-C-E attributes by all of his or her teachers. Scores for the nominees are compiled, with the top ranked 50 students selected to receive these awards. Some students are nominated by more than one teacher and over multiple semesters and years.
Winners are presented with “ACE Bucks” in $10 denominations, which they can redeem up to face value for merchandise at local merchants. Merchants may be reimbursed for the amount of purchase up to $10.00, not including tips, or gratuity. To do this, you must attach a receipt showing the cost of purchase and the ACE buck. For your convenience, ACE bucks now contain an area where you can stamp the receipt directly onto the ACE buck.
The following merchants have agreed to accept ACE bucks:
Ava Marie Chocolates
Brady’s American Grill
Country Bridals and Formal Wear
Knitty Gritty Yarn Shop
