Kohl’s Kids Who Care Scholarship Program to Recognize Young Volunteers
Deadline: March 15, 2009

Through the Kohl’s Kids Who Care scholarship program, the Kohl’s Corporation (http://www.kohlscorporation.com/) plans to award a total of over $350,000 in scholarships and prizes this year to more than two thousand kids whose volunteer efforts have made a positive impact on their communities. The program recognizes and rewards young volunteers (ages 6 to 18) who help make their communities a better place.

To be eligible for an award, the young person’s efforts should be above and beyond what is normally expected of a child his or her age. Volunteer efforts should have made a positive impact on others and occurred in the last twelve months. The activity cannot be performed solely to benefit a family member. Creativity, initiative, generosity, leadership, and project reach will be evaluated during the judging process.

Nominees must be legal U.S. residents of a state in which a Kohl’s store is located. Nominees must be between the ages of 6 and 18 and not yet a high school graduate as of March 15, 2009. Each nominee must be nominated by someone 21 years of age or older. Parents may nominate their own children.

Nominees will be divided into two groups (ages 6 to 12 and 13 to 18) and awards will be given on three levels. More than two thousand store winners will each be awarded a $50 Kohl’s Gift Card. The 194 regional winners will each be awarded $1,000 scholarships toward their postsecondary education. Ten national winners will each be awarded $5,000 scholarships. In addition, Kohl’s will contribute $1,000 to a nonprofit organization on behalf of each national winner.

The program will accept nominations from February 1 through March 15, 2009. Visit the Kohl’s Corporation Web site for complete program materials (available in English and Spanish).
