11th Annual Search Under Way for Montana’s Top Youth Volunteers
State Honorees Receive Cash Awards, Medallions and Trip to Washington, D.C., for National Events
Conrad and Laurel Youth Were Montana’s Honorees in 2005
Over the past 10 years, Prudential Spirit of Community Awards have been given to nearly 500 middle level and high school students across Montana for helping the less fortunate, promoting health and safety, protecting the environment, and serving their communities through many other volunteer activities. This week the search begins to identify more young Montanans who have made meaningful contributions to their communities over the past 12 months, as the prestigious awards program kicks off its 11th year.
These awards, presented nationwide by Prudential Financial, Inc. in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), honor outstanding community service by young people in grades 5 through 12.
"Young people who take the initiative to serve their communities through volunteerism are a great source of strength for our nation, and give us ample reason to be optimistic about the future," said Prudential Chairman and CEO Arthur F. Ryan. "We want to recognize them, encourage them, and hold them up as role models for all young Americans."
Application forms for The 2006 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards will be available over the next two months through middle level and high schools, Girl Scout councils, county 4-H agents, American Red Cross chapters, YMCAs, and member Volunteer Centers of the Points of Light Foundation & Volunteer Center National Network. They also may be obtained at http://www.prudential.com/spirit or http://www.principals.org/prudential, or by calling toll-free 888-450-9961.
