The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards is a nationwide program that honors young people in grades five to twelve who are volunteering in their communities. Youth who have engaged in a volunteer activity that occurred during the twelve months prior to the date of application are eligible to apply. Local Honorees are selected in late fall and from those winners two State Honorees (one middle level school student and one high school student) are chosen in each state and the District of Columbia. State Honorees receive an award of $1,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, DC, for national recognition events. Out of the State Honorees, ten National Honorees are selected to receive an additional award of $5,000 as well as a $5,000 grant for a nonprofit organization of their choice. Deadline is November 6, 2018. To learn more, click here.

Everyday Young Heroes are young people, ages 5-25, who are improving their communities through service to others. Each week, the YSA Team selects one young person to receive this honor. Projects can provide a direct service, be philanthropic, or raise awareness or advocacy around a particular community need. To learn more, click here.

Start a Snowball, Inc. encourages kids of all ages to engage in philanthropic and community service activities. The organization believes that even one child with the right intentions and support can start a project that seems small in the beginning and eventually grows (“snowballs”) into something that inspires and benefits an entire community. In order to help kids kick off their philanthropy efforts, Start a Snowball awards $100 in seed funding for projects taken on by individuals or organizations. To be eligible, projects must be led by youth between the ages of 5 and 18 and have the intention of doing good. There is no deadline. To learn more, click here.
