The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards has launched a search for Ohio’s top youth volunteers of 2016. Now through November 3, 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. The application is available at spirit.prudential.com and nassp.org/spirit.
Winning students will receive the President’s volunteer SErvice Award, and will become eligible to win an unrestricted award of $1,000 or more, a beautifully engraved medallion, and an all-expense-paid trip with a parent or guardian to Washington, D.C., next spring for four days of special recognition events.
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards was created in 1995 to recognize middle level and high school students for helping people in need, promoting health and safety, protecting the environment, or volunteering in other ways. The awards are presented annually on the local, state and national level.
