Nominations Invited for 2017 Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards
Based on the Jewish concept of tikkun olam, or “repair of the world,” the Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards seek to recognize Jewish teens who are exceptional role models in their communities and beyond. The awards celebrate teens who have demonstrated remarkable leadership and are actively engaged in projects that embody the values of tikkun olam. Teen projects may benefit either the Jewish or global community.
Up to fifteen teens will be acknowledged for their visionary porject with an award of $36,000 to be used to further their project or education.
Anyone (other than a member of his or her family) is eligible to nominate a teen. And teens welcome to apply without a nomination. In that case, no nomination form is filled out but an additional recommendation is required. Anyone (other than the applicant’s nominator or a member of the applicant’s family) can serve as a reference for a teen.
To be eligible, nominees must be between the ages of 13 and 19 at the time of nomination, be working to repair the world in a leadership capacity, be volunteering without compensation, and self-identify as Jewish.
While complete application packages are due on January 4, 2017, all nominations must be received no later than December 18, 2016.
For complete award guidelines, nomination and application instructions, an FAQ, and profiles of the 2016 award recipients, see the Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards website.
DEADLINE: DECEMBER 18, 2016
