Prudential Spirit of Community Awards


Prudential Financial, in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, is sponsoring its 20th annual Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. Students in grades 5-12 are invited to apply for the awards if they have made meaningful contributions to their communities through volunteer service within the past 12 months. Students must complete the application, which is available online at http://spirit.prudential.com, by Nov. 4 and then submit it for certification to a middle or high school principal. Schools will then select the top recipients in early November and submit those names for state-level judging. The middle and high school recipients for each state will be named on Feb. 10. The top middle and high school candidates in each state receive $1,000, an engraved silver medallion, and a trip to Washington, D.C., with a parent for four days of recognition events scheduled for May 2-5. Ten national honorees will be named and among other things, will receive an additional $5,000 in awards.
