The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards is looking for Arizona’s top youth volunteers of the year.
Students in grades 5-12 are invited to apply, through Nov. 6, for 2019 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards if they have made meaningful contributions to their communities through volunteer service within the past 12 months. The application is available at http://spirit.prudential.com and www.nassp.org/spirit.
Students must complete the online application by Nov. 6. Students also can request a paper application by calling 855-670-4787. Then, students submit the application for certification to their principal or head of a local participating organization. Applications can be certified by the head of a Girl Scout council, county 4-H organization, American Red Cross chapter, YMCA or an affiliate of Points of Light’s HandsOn Network.
Certifiers review all applications for their school or organization, then select a Local Honoree to nominate for state-level judging by Nov. 16.
On Feb. 5, 2019, the top middle level and high school volunteer from each state and the District of Columbia will be named State Honorees. They will receive $1,000, engraved silver medallions and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., with a parent or guardian for four days of recognition events from May 4-7, 2019.
