The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards has begun its search for Arizona’s top youth volunteers of 2016. The annual national awards program, sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), honors students in grades 5-12 who have made meaningful contributions to their communities through volunteer service.
Now through Nov. 3, middle level and high school students are invited to apply for 2016 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards at http://spirit.prudential.com. The top middle and high school volunteer in every state each receive $1,000, a silver medallion and an all-expense-paid trip with a parent to Washington, D.C., for several days of national recognition events. State-level runners-up receive bronze medallions or Certificates of Excellence.
In Washington, 10 National Honorees are named America’s top youth volunteers of the year. These National Honorees earn $5,000 personal awards, gold medallions, crystal trophies for their nominating schools or organizations, and $5,000 Prudential Foundation grants for charities of their choice.
