The Prudential Spirit Award is given to young people on the basis of their volunteer service. We urge you to encourage girls who have volunteered over the past year to participate in the 2018 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. Girl Scouts who earned Bronze, Silver, or Gold Awards may be particularly good candidates.
State winners will receive silver medallions, $1,000 scholarship, and all-expense paid trip to Washington DC for a recognition event. Ten individuals will be selected as National Winners and will receive an additional $5,000, a gold medallion, a trophy, and a $5,000 grant for a charitable nonprofit organization of their choice.
Girls can apply online now through November 7th. We will then review applications and select those who will represent our council at the state-level judging. We are excited about this opportunity to re-emphasize the importance of volunteering, and to possible gain statewide or even nationwide recognition for our hardworking Girl Scouts.
Your application must be submitted to the Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson’s CEO at firstname.lastname@example.org
