Student Volunteers Invited to Apply for Prudential Spirit of Community Awards
Deadline: October 31, 2008

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, sponsored by Prudential Financial ( and administered by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (, are designed to honor middle and high school students for volunteer community service.

Eligible applicants include any young person in the United States who is in grades five through twelve and who has engaged in a volunteer activity that occurred at least partly during the twelve months prior to the date of application.

Local honorees are selected in November, and from these winners two state honorees are chosen in each state and the District of Columbia. Out of the state honorees, ten national honorees are selected and announced at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., in May of 2009. State Honorees receive an award of $1,000 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., for national recognition events. National Honorees receive an additional award of $5,000.
