Sue Scheff: Youths and Teens Rewarded for Volunteerism
Monday, May 3, 2010 12:45 PM Eastern
As a parent, it’s important to teach children about the great impact volunteering can have on our communities. The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards is to encourage you and to support our 102 youth volunteer honorees for 2010 for their outstanding accomplishments.
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards was created 15 years ago to recognize young heroes who have made exceptional impacts on the lives of others through acts of volunteerism. Again this year, two honorees from each state will receive $1,000, an engraved silver medallion, and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. for several days of national recognition events. And ten of these students will be named National Honorees on May 3, receiving an additional $5,000, gold medallions, trophies, and $5,000 grants from The Prudential Foundation for a charitable organization of their choice.
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards honor young people in middle level and high school grades for outstanding volunteer service to their communities. Created in 1995 by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), the awards constitute the United States’ largest youth recognition program based solely on volunteering. Over the past 15 years, the program has honored more than 90,000 young volunteers at the local, state, and national level.
