Nominate for the Student Spotlight


Each week, Your Niskayuna celebrates an outstanding student by publishing a profile of his or her accomplishments. Students can be between kindergarten and twelfth grade, either enrolled in Niskayuna schools or living in Niskayuna (it’s okay if the student you want to nominate attends a private school or is homeschooled).

On some occasions, we also feature college students who grew up in Niskayuna, adult students, and prominent alumni. Please feel free to get creative.

If you’d like to read some past Student Spotlight profiles, here they are!

If you have questions about the Student Spotlight, please email reporter Kristin Schultz at or give her a call at (518) 395-3191.
