Hello everyone. We thought that the following awards might be of interest to those of you who work with middle and high school aged youth:

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, sponsored by Prudential Financial and the National Association of Secondary School Principals, recognize students in middle and high school grades who have demonstrated exemplary community service.

Any student in grades 5-12 as of 10/31 in any state, the District of Columbia, or Puerto Rico is eligible to apply. The student should have been engaged in volunteer activity that occurred at least in part after 9/1/02. An application must be completed and submitted to a school principal or the head of an officially designated organization by 10/31.

The top high school and middle school volunteers in each state receive silver medallions, $1,000 awards, and a trip to Washington, D.C. for a national recognition event. Ten students will be named as National Honorees, winning an additional $5,000, a gold medallion, and crystal trophy, plus $25,000 worth of products will be donated to needy children in each of their communities.
