Calling all High Awards recipients and girls who have completed substantial community service projects over the past year! We want you to participate in the 2014 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards!
This unique youth recognition program, sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, has recognized more than 100,000 middle and high school students—including thousands of Girl Scouts—at the local, state, and national level for outstanding acts of volunteerism over the last 18 years.
Top winners receive sizable cash awards, engraved medallions, and an all-expense-paid trip with a parent or guardian to Washington, DC, for the national awards ceremony in May 2014.
To apply, visit http://spirit.prudential.com or www.nassp.org/spirit. Follow the instructions and don’t forget to print out the certification form and bring it (or mail it) to your local leadership center!
We need the applications by November 5, 2013. After November 5th, we’ll review applications and select one or more honorees to represent Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois at the state-level judging. If you have any questions or need a paper version of the application, call toll-free 877-525-8491.
We hope you’re excited because we sure are! We’re excited about this opportunity to re-emphasize the importance of volunteering within our council, and the opportunity to gain statewide and national recognition for Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois.
