Awards for Youth Volunteers!
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program annually honors middle and high school students in the United States who volunteer in communities at home or abroad. Local honorees will be selected by school principals, Girl Scout councils, county 4-H groups, American Red Cross chapters, YMCAs, and affiliates of the HandsOn Network. Several students in each state and the District of Columbia will be named runners-up, with one middle level and one high school student named a state honoree. State honorees will receive $1,000 awards, silver medallions, and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., in May for special recognition events. Deadline is November 8, 2016.
