The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program has kicked off its search for Michigan's top youth volunteers of 2013.
Now through Nov. 6, Michigan students in grades 5-12 who have volunteered in the past 12 months are invited to apply for 2013 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards by visiting http://spirit.prudential.com and www.nassp.org/spirit.
Michigan's top youth volunteers of 2012 were Braeleigh Apley, 18, of Ann Arbor and Shayna Wierenga, 14, of Grand Haven. As State Honorees, Braeleigh and Shayna received $1,000 awards, engraved silver medallions, and all-expense-paid trips to Washington, D.C.
The awards, sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), are granted annually to recognize middle and high school students for helping the less fortunate, promoting health and safety, protecting the environment, or volunteering in other ways.
“We have been recognizing youth volunteers since 1995 – and still, every year, we’re amazed by the stories of exemplary community service,” said Prudential Chairman and CEO John R. Strangfeld. “We look forward to honoring the top youth volunteers of 2013 for their selflessness, their initiative and their dedication to changing communities for the better.”
