2014 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards


The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program recognizes middle level and high school youth solely on the basis of volunteer work in their communities. This unique program is conducted on the local level through middle level and high schools and through these officially designated local organizations: Girl Scout councils, county 4-H organizations, American Red Cross chapters, YMCAs, and affiliates of HandsOn Network. Participating in this nationwide program enables you to applaud deserving young volunteers, inspire other young people to get involved in community service activities, and attract widespread recognition for your school or local organization.
