CNH Industrial (NYSE: CNHI /MI: CNHI) announced the winners of the 2020 Sergio Marchionne Student Achievement Awards for North America.

The annual Student Achievement Awards Program recognizes children of CNH Industrial’s employees for their academic excellence, involvement in extracurricular activities and community service. The program highlights the Company’s commitment to promoting education, investing into talent, and giving back to the community. Started in 1996, it is open to students who have graduated in the previous year with a high school diploma, an associate’s degree or a bachelor’s degree, and is offered in all countries where CNH Industrial has a significant presence. Since its inception, monetary awards have been granted to more than 40,000 students worldwide.

The award presentation for the winning students in North America and their families had to be cancelled due to the current COVID-19 crisis.
