4-H participants can gain statewide or national recognition for demonstrating outstanding volunteer community service by joining in the 2011 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards, a prestigious, independent awards program that recognizes young people in grades 5-12 on the basis of their volunteer activities. The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program is sponsored by Prudential Financial in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals.
Last year, 137 county 4-H programs selected honorees in this prestigious youth recognition program, and 17 4-H’ers were among the 102 State Honorees for 2010. This recognition is extremely beneficial to 4-H’ers who have performed exemplary acts of service in their communities and to 4-H as a whole.
The Travis County 4-H program can nominate one middle school student (grades 5-8) and one high school student (grades 9-12). For those interested, please Contact Cory no later than October 15, 2010 - firstname.lastname@example.org
