   Benjamin Estes Memorial Award ($500 for the team)
      Golden Gate High School
Those who were lucky enough to know Benjamin Estes would tell you that he was a devoted Model UN sponsor and, more importantly, a genuinely kind man.  He was a scholar and a lover of literature. In addition, he was a fervent advocate for social justice in both his professional and personal life.  Ben was the first teacher in Collier County to promote and teach AICE Classical Studies, which took a deeper look into the arts and history of Greek and Roman antiquity.  He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and the students and faculty at Golden Gate High School.
