Recognition Program Looking for Outstanding Youth Volunteers in Your Community

9/27/2005:   The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, the United States' largest youth recognition program, is looking for middle and high school students who have given outstanding volunteer service to their communities. The deadline to apply for the 2006 awards is October 31, 2005.

Created in 1995 by Prudential Financial, in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the program has honored more than 60,000 young volunteers at the local, state, and national level. Last year's 10 national honorees were recognized for good deeds such as planting vegetable gardens to feed the needy, starting computer education programs for seniors, collecting toys for young cancer patients, and organizing clothing drives for needy students.

Young people can visit the Prudential Financial website to apply. The site also contains many resources for young volunteers, including volunteering tips, project ideas, and information about where to volunteer.
