Book Prizes Awarded for Outstanding Academic Achievement

Each year, Hotchkiss awards Book Prizes to recognize members of the prep, lower-mid, and upper-mid classes for outstanding academic achievement. These students have demonstrated mastery of relevant content, keen critical thinking, and impressive curiosity.

Below are the recipients of the Book Prizes, which celebrate academic achievements from the 2022-23 school year. The awards were presented in class meetings in October 2023. Hotchkiss congratulates all recipients for their commitment, passion, and leadership.

(Major School Prizes were awarded during Convocation on Sept. 8. View the recipients of Major School Prizes.)
