If you’ve made a difference through volunteering over the past year, you could win $1,000 and a fabulous trip to Washington, D.C., next May – by applying for a Prudential Spirit of Community Award! Even more importantly, you could win recognition that might inspire other young people to follow your example.
These prestigious awards, sponsored by Prudential Financial and the National Association of Secondary School Principals, have honored more than 100,000 middle and high school students at the local, state and national level over the past 17 years solely for their volunteer work.
Once you have completed your online application, go to the “Certification” page to either email certification instructions to your certifier, or to print them out and hand-deliver them. These instructions will enable your certifier to review your application online.
This must be done by November 6, 2012. Your certifier can be your school principal, or the head of one of these officially designated local organizations: a county 4-H group, Girl Scout council, American Red Cross chapter, YMCA, or affiliate of HandsOn Network.
Before submitting your application, you and your parent or guardian must complete the student/parent agreement page, which can be found on the last tab of the application.
If you need a paper application form, call (877) 525-8491 toll-free.
