Application being accepted for Prudential Spirit of Community Award
NORFOLK - If you or someone you know in grades 5-12 has a strong record in community service they are encouraged by U.S. Senator Deb Fischer to apply for the Prudential Spirit of Community Award.
Executive Director of the award with Prudential Financial Greg Loder says the award was created in 1995 to identify outstanding youth volunteers throughout the U.S.
Loder says over the years it has been great to see what the kids do for their respective communities.
“Over the last 24 years we’ve recognized at the local, state, and national level more than 125,000 young people. Every year their stories keep getting better because they’re more innovative and they’re using social media to recruit their friends and volunteers.”
Loder says two Nebraska students will be chosen in grades 5-12 where they will join other honorees from across the country for an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. where they’ll also receive a $1,000 award.
He says 10 students will be chosen as America’s top youth volunteers of the year where they will receive an additional $5,000 and a $5,000 grant to the charity of their choice.
You can apply before the November 6th deadline at Spirit.Prudential.Com.
