In this year's program, all 92 Indiana Counties participated in the program which culminated in March. One winner was selected from each participating county and from those county winners a statewide winner and four runner-up were selected. The Statewide winner received a $1,000 US Savings Bond, while Runners-up received $750 in bonds. All remaining county winners were awarded a $500 bond by the association. In addition award winners received, "You Make a Difference" Certificates from Governor Mitch Daniels, engraved plaques, a "Respect for Law" Camp scholarship and other gifts. Many of the county awards were presented by area Indiana State Police Officers at end of year Awards Programs at the winner's school.
On June 13, all county winners, their families, school officials, and legislators, were invited to the Indiana State House for the Statewide Awards Program. Taylor Moore, daughter of Amy and Steve Moore, was among the winners. She attended Van Buren Elementary and is starting North Clay in August.
