Tony Wang attends Amador Valley High School. Tony hopes to uplift and inspire youth through increasing educational access. Noticing the lack of opportunities for students to participate in research, especially for marginalized groups, he founded the ACSEF SLB, which has run free science workshops, mentorship programs, media initiatives, etc. Tony also leads Rhapsody for Youth, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has raised and donated more than 15,000 dollars for low-income Bay Area youth, through which he has founded free entrepreneurship and web development camps. Tony envisions a world where all students have access to opportunities to pursue their passions.
The NSHSS Nobel Academic Excellence Scholarship recognizes high school juniors and seniors making a positive impact on society, and how college will help these students continue to make an impact for years to come.
