Nominations are accepted year round and all nominees are reviewed and recommended by a selection committee composed of the LCSS Advancement Committee, CC alumni, past winners and school leaders in the month of March. Winners are announced at the Blue Knight Auction and recognized on stage during the commencement ceremonies. 

A reception is held the day before commencement to honor each individual.
