2017 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards application due November 8

Just four weeks remain for youth volunteers to apply for national recognition through the 2017 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. This program is an excellent opportunity to shine a spotlight on students who have distinguished themselves through community service, and celebrate the spirit of volunteerism throughout the student body. We hope you’ll encourage your youth volunteers to apply. 2017 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards are open to students in grades 5-12 who have participated in a volunteer activity within the past year. Honors are granted at the local, state and national level. The top honorees from each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia receive a cash prize and an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. for four days of special recognition events. Here’s how students can apply:

  • Visit http://spirit.prudential.com or www.nassp.org/spirit
  • Complete the application and the student/parent agreement by November 8, 2016
  • Email or hand-deliver certification instructions to a middle or high school principal, or the head of a county 4-H organization, Girl Scout council, American Red Cross chapter, YMCA or HandsOn Network affiliate
