Deadline Approaching – If You’re a Youth Making a Difference in Your Community!

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards is looking for you 

If you’re a middle or high school student making a difference in your community, you have until Nov. 7 to answer the 2018 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards call for entries.

Sponsored in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the awards have been called the nation’s largest youth volunteer recognition program.

Recognizing a diverse group of student volunteers—the photos here represent some of last year’s winners; Harmonie Frederick was a National winner—each year the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards engages a distinguished panel of judges to select the student winners. Judges include representatives from the nation’s leading service and education organizations.
